We invite individuals with disabilities of all ages to come participate in our community events. Each unique event will provide the opportunity to experience sports, performing arts, visual arts, nature, or wellness in an inclusive environment. We also invite volunteers to join in the fun! After each event, we find that the volunteers feel like their lives were impacted as much as or more than the lives of the participants.
FIELD OF DREAMS

On Stage gives individuals the chance to showcase their talents in performing arts events.

It's time to sing and dance our hearts out!
