The ability to play is fundamental to the healthy development of children physically, socially, emotionally, and mentally. Every Ability Plays Project’s (EAPP) mission is to expand the world of play for children and young adults with disabilities by providing accessible play equipment in their neighborhood playgrounds and communities as well as their own backyards so that individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to develop alongside their peers with as few barriers as possible.
What our grantee is saying: "The desire to move and play is just as present in children with disabilities as anyone else and the ability for children with and without disabilities to play alongside each other helps establish a foundation of respect and cooperation that will last a lifetime. Funds received from this grant will go towards purchasing a special adaptive swing for Casa Angelica, and it will allow many children and young adults in the greater Albuquerque area to play without barriers."
What our trustees are saying: "I really like that it is really clear that this was something that came from personal experience."
