What we aim to solve New!

We see the problem as three-fold. First, caretakers of individuals with developmental disabilities are exhausted and highly stressed. They do not have respite opportunities available which they can trust, are affordable, and give their children opportunities for growth, physically and spiritually. Secondly, individuals with special needs do not have enough evening opportunities to keep them active both physically and spiritually, as well as engaged in relationships with neuro-typical and other peers with disabilities. And finally, the church has not been engaged to support these families. 80% of families who desire to attend church do not attend because they don't feel supported. Our programs are designed to solve each of these problems in a creative and unique way.

Charting Impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We aim to provide programs that support families who have children with disabilities and ease the burden they face daily. We do this through first-class, entertaining events that accomplish two goals. First, as families drop off their children at our events they are given a block of hours to rest or focus on other family members who are otherwise neglected due to their situation. And secondly, it offers their children with special needs an opportunities to have fun, to build their community of abled and differently-abled individuals, and express and develop their faith. To accomplish this it takes an army of caring and committed volunteers, which we are able to mobilize through our adult recreational program.

We have recently developed a Grant Campaign with a professional grant writer and nonprofit consultant team. We know that we have to have the support of our local grantmakers in order to be successful year after year. With help of grants and the help of the grantmakers staff, we can build critical relationships within our industry. By adding all that into our strategy, we can be more assured of a successful result for the short and long term results.

Our capabilities are fueled with 1 full-time employee, 8 highly engaged leader volunteers, and over 700 regular volunteers. We have logged so far this year over 1,330 hours of regular volunteers and over 300 professional volunteer time. With always watching and cultivating our volunteer base through our adult recreational programs, we have successfully been able to accomplish more than we could have ever accomplished with our paid staff.

We keep meticulous records on all activity by our employees as well as volunteers. Coupled with the mail-in forms of all our clients, we are able to monthly clock our progress, and where we need to concentrate, in order to meet our goals and/or concede them. These reports are monitored by our Board of Directors monthly through either meeting or emails.

Here are the programs we have established in the last 4 years. Our All-Stars Club has doubled this past year with the other programs experiencing steady growth. Our All-Stars Clubs have grown to 2 locations in 2018, each through a partnership with a local church. We are now serving a combined 90 individuals with special needs while giving their parents two nights per month which they can find 3 hours of rest. We continue to sell out of spots for our annual Night to Shine prom with 125 guests and over 250 volunteers. This night not only provides a formal experience which each of our guests with special needs deserves, but also gives their parents/caretakers a much needed night of rest. Our Barre Stars Fitness Program launched in early 2018 and has shown its success through it's growth and demand from caretakers to keep offering this program. Our sports programs through Activ8 Sports continue to operate successfully, bringing in many active young adults who convert to volunteers.
