Empowering those with disabilities

Chris Rodriguez

Chris Rodriguez graduated from Berkeley with a degree in political science and a string of academic honors. His talents could have taken him anywhere in the world.

He also grew up with a brother who had intellectual and developmental disabilities, and watched the challenges he – and his parents – faced.

As a result, Chris has devoted his career toward solving the problems facing those with disabilities. His passion led his to his position as President & CEO of Ability360, one of the nation’s largest centers providing support services to help those with disabilities live independently through advocating for legislation, offering education and training, home modification and programs at the 45,000-square-foot Ability360 Sports and Fitness Center.
