What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

3 day Camp Sessions

Our programs for persons with physical disabilities are being held all over North Texas. Currently, our Camp Sessions are being held in Anna, at a not so barrier free leased camp facility. We call these our "Mock Camp Sessions” as our ultimate goal is to build our exclusive barrier-free facility one day.

Population(s) Served

The league, known as NTWHL, will begin playing March 2014. The North Texas Wheelchair Hockey League will meet select Sundays, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm, starting Sunday, March 9, 2014, at Carpenter Recreation Center in Plano.
The NTWHL will have 4 divisions, based on varying levels of physical ability and mobility equipment. This league is for people who use a manual or power wheelchair for mobility. All players must have the ability to understand the program activities and full instruction. Participants will include those living with the most severe limited range of motion and less physical functionality, to those of persons with high-functioning upper body strength.

Population(s) Served

We currently have an Online Support Group providing support and resources in the community for persons with disabilities, their families. Included in our support group are healthcare professionals.

Population(s) Served

We collaborate with other 501(c)3 organizations in the community which also serve people with physical disabilities in all ages. By collaborating directly we are able to share in expenses, volunteers, marketing of a program, and over all the success of serving those families that have someone with a disability.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Although we currently hold "mock" camp sessions at a not so barrier free leased facility and power wheelchair hockey at a local rec center. Our goal is to build a permanent facility with out site on Frisco, TX.

Our goal to include with our permanent facility…

• Camp programs in a completely adaptive indoor and outdoor barrier-free facility. One week recreational sessions for adults and children, which are wheelchair users with physical disabilities.

• Create a barrier-free, independent living community providing housing for those with physical disabilities to live, work and play.

• Serving Families by providing a facility, support groups, and education on community resources, in which families may need. Family camp sessions and sibling camp sessions will allow family time without any limitations in both recreation and therapeutic programs.

• Educational & Independent Living Curriculum for adults with physical disabilities to learn practical life skills of living and working independently. Post injury user groups will learn about themselves and independence. Progressive illness user groups will learn adaptations within their environment resulting from a physical change.

• Conference & Retreat Facility targeting healthcare professionals and organizations in which we can promote advocacy by broadening the awareness in the complete adaptive environment. Providing educational curriculum in all physical diseases and injuries resulting to being in a wheelchair. Hands on Conference experience in which will be the first of its kind and world class.

• Sports Training Facility and housing which will allow athletes who use wheelchairs to train in a state of the art fully adapted facility including sports as basketball, hockey, tennis, and archery.

Collaborating with corporate sponsors, continue fundraising, and collaborating with the City of Frisco to make our barrier-free facility a reality.
Continue holding "mock" camp sessions, power wheelchair hockey, community events, and our online support group to best meet the needs of people with physical disabilities.

We believe with the above listed strategies that our permanent barrier-free facility will become a reality as well as fully meet our mission statement and goals.
Since 2011, we have had mock camp sessions at a leased facility, but also provided mentoring, job placement, community resources, provided medical equipment, and been a resource for many other organizations to serve those with physical disabilities and their families. We have provided immediate medical equipment, medical supplies, medical formula on an immediate basis without the red tape, a long paper work process.

-Currently holding programs in Frisco, TX.
-Currently hold "mock" camp sessions and a leased facility in Anna, Tx
-Currently working on increasing our power wheelchair hockey programs in Collin County.
-Currently have an online support group, blog, and newsletter to reach out to people with physical disabilities and the community
