Creating opportunities that enable play in order to combat social isolation, foster inclusive communities, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.

People with disabilities are 51% more likely to be socially isolated than their non-disabled peers.

You want people with disabilities to have rich well rounded lives that let them be their best selves and to have something to look forward to. Your support works every day to bring play to those desperately needing it, and we do it at no cost to the people we serve.
