Amputee Coalition Annual Conference
ACR provides opportunities for interested adults with amputations to attend the annual Amputee Coalition conference. This highly educational conference provides state of the art equipment and information relevant to the lives of people living with amputations.
The Amputee Connection of Redlands' mission is to serve and encourage people with limb loss to enhance their physical and emotional health through peer counseling, educational & recreational programs, and community outreach.
The vision of the Amputee Connection is to empower caregivers, families and friends to optimize the care and well being of people with limb loss in Southern California.
Sports and Recreation - Engaging children and adults who live with an amputation is the heart of recovery. ACR participates annually in sporting events such as the DisAbility Sports Festival and the Angel City Games.
Community Service Events - ACR can be found supporting our local Grand Terrace Lions 5K & 10K Fun Run Walk for Freedom, Inland Empire Disability Collabrative Expo, Highgrove Day, and Grand Terrace Day each year. These events not only provide an opportunity for ACR members to connect to their community, but supports our efforts to give back.
Camp No Limits - ACR sponsors amputee children and their families for a weekend at Camp No Limits in Big Bear. Dedicated to children with limb loss and limb deficiency, Camp No Limits provides a unique and empowering experience.
The value of peers in recovery for a person with an amputation is invaluable from the day of amputation to their return home. ACR coordinates efforts to certify peer vistors. For more information please select the Peer Visits tab.

It’s with a heavy heart that we honor and say good bye to Bill Nessel, our beloved President, Certified Peer Visitor and Spokesman. For 16 years Bill has been an advocate for adults and children with limb loss, helping and supporting the community in every way possible. Bill made ACR what it is today. Though he is no longer with us, his legacy will live on for ages and in the hearts and souls of all the people who had the pleasure of working with Bill through the years.
❤️ A leader, friend, husband, father, brother, will be greatly missed.
We are also very active in sporting events, fund raising, and amputee networking within Southern California and on a Nationwide basis. We also are helping to get other support groups started such as the new group in the Coachella Valley and a Parents of Children with Limb Loss support group in Loma Linda. Please join us and help make a positive impact other new amputees lives. Speakers are available for presentations to your groups or organizations. Contact Bill at 909-423-0562

Proud members of the
In 2015, ACR launched a program of outreach in an effort to reach those with amputations who cannot attend monthly meetings. Through Skype we are able to bring professionals and others with amputations into their homes. This is an interactive format that allows for the Skype user to interact with the attendees and speakers.
