HOPE Inc., based in Moorhead, MN, specializes in improving the lives of children with mobility challenges. HOPE offers activities to kids and their families, supplies adaptive equipment for checkout, and provides moral support to all HOPE families. It was started in 1992 as a mobility camp and
expanded to year-round wheelchair sports and recreation program in 2006
with 5 families offering 2 activities.
"EVERY child deserves the opportunity to play sports and reap the benefits that come along with being part of a team. So many life skills are learned from being part of a team - sportsmanship, learning to win and lose, communication, and teamwork - along with an increase in self-esteem and confidence! We are very proud that our program is family-centered. We have extra adaptive equipment so that siblings, parents, and friends can play too!"
