It is a national problem that can only be solved locally – as young adults with physical disabilities “age out” of high school, they no longer have the social and athletic activities that kept them involved and active in their community. They find themselves totally dependent on their aging parents for personal care and support, and they become isolated at home which often leads to loneliness and depression.
Champions Community Foundation is a business-minded entity leveraging its unique knowledge base and passions to serve young adults with physical disabilities, including cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, and physical injury — some who also have some minor, secondary intellectual challenges. We exist so that we may significantly improve the lives of young adults with physical disabilities, enabling them to reach their full potential as self-reliant, productive, and fulfilled citizens in their local community.
