We work to support youth adversely affected by disabilities.

The Foundation is working to support families with children or youth adversely affected by a disability by supporting access to adaptive youth experiences, animal-related therapy, and therapeutic and independent living programming.

The Foundation supports organizations that serve youth who suffer from a broad range of conditions that impair daily functioning and quality of life. Services that are funded include therapeutic interventions, youth and family supports, and enrichment opportunities that serve youth with disability conditions that they will live with all their lives or chronic health conditions that may or may not be curable. The Foundation is also interested in supporting the transition to adult support.

An area of interest for the Foundation is animal-related therapy, particularly those involving dogs and horses.

The Foundation’s focus in youth disability is primarily:

  • Opportunities for youth to experience enrichment and therapeutic programming
  • Animal-related therapies
