About Us

It all started with a mother's desire to find free events for her son with special needs.


Once children become adults free opportunities to meet with peers is a rare opportunity. Natalie came up with an idea.


Special Adventures Non-Profit Organization created for adults with disabilities - comes to fruition!




Special Adventures is a 501 (C)3 Organization, created to make a difference in the lives of special needs adults. Because a large percentage of adults with disabilities have meager funds and limited abilities, Special Adventures provides them FREE, FUN and SAFE activities on a monthly basis. For all adults with special needs, who are over eighteen, we provide a judgement-free, discrimination-free environment; where they connect with their peers, strengthen their social skills and improve their confidence.  It is our mission to try to improve the quality of life for those who cannot help themselves. 

 “Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.”

Celebrity Guest Becomes Volunteer


 Special Adventures hosted a Prom for adults with special-needs. A 

surprise guest created a buzz of excitement and added delight to an already spectacular event. After meeting with all the people attending the dance, as well as the volunteers, Miss Minnesota International joined in and worked to assist attendants at the Hair and Makeup Station. Hannah, Miss Minnesota International believes in our cause, to bring more opportunities to adults with special-needs in our communities, and is now helping to shine a light on our Organization. 



Special Adventures mission is to provide FREE, fun and safe events for adults with special-needs. There are no other organizations that put on free events for this population on a monthly basis. Our events give them something to look forward to, as well as help everyone feel like part of a community. Special Adventures hopes to fill a 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.
