Mission Statement

Providing life-enriching assistance to Wisconsin children challenged by physical disabilities.

Description

Variety serves children age 21 and younger who have a diagnosed or demonstrated physical disability, including, but not limited to, children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Rett syndrome, muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome, Angelman syndrome, epilepsy and amputees.

Our vision is that all children, regardless of ability, are able to actively participate in their communities and experience all of the joys that come with being a kid.

The Freedom Program provides funding for mobility and other enabling equipment that provides or improves a child’s physical well-being, quality of life, community involvement and confidence. Examples of funded equipment include wheelchairs, walkers, adaptive bicycles, strollers, stair lifts, ramps, communication devices and more.

The Future Kids Program helps Wisconsin children with physical disabilities reach their full potential in life. Experiences in education, culture, sport and community are the cornerstones to develop skills that can lead to that future. This program takes children with physical challenges and their immediate family members on free outings to museums, professional sporting events, nature centers, movies and other fun and educational places.

Chatter Matters! Communication Camp is a residential camp for children who use speech generating devices, as well as for their family and caregivers. The primary aim of the camp is for the child to improve his or other device use and become a more competent communicator in a fun and relaxing atmosphere through traditional camp experiences.
