Most special needs adults live in group homes, foster care settings or on their own with guardian supervision. Any income earned, along with their SSI benefits is contributed as payment for their housing. This leaves them approximately $99.00 per month for all their personal needs such as shampoo, toothpaste, clothing, etc.
Special Adventures mission is to provide FREE, fun and safe events for special needs adults. There are no other organizations that put on free events for this population on a monthly basis. Special Adventures hopes to fill that void by furnishing FREE events allowing special needs adults to connect with their peers in a social setting, creating a culture of inclusion and improving their quality of life.
Once children with special needs become adults, free activities to socialize with their peers are rare opportunities. Most special needs adults lack the funds to enjoy the simple activities we take for granted.
