Mission Statement

The mission of MovingWithHOPE (Health Oriented Physical Education) is to provide survivors of brain and spinal injury and disease with year round access to exercise & recreational therapies and adaptive exercise equipment to help them remain independent in their community.

MovingWithHOPE is a 501(c)(3) charity in Shelton, CT, that specializes in securing scholarship funds for individuals with complicated brain and spinal injuries, allowing them to participate in year-round activity therapy programs. These programs include strength and conditioning to improve balance, gait and mobility; transfer skills; fall prevention training; emotional well-being; and reduction of secondary health risks such as obesity, diabetes, and heart and cardiovascular issues.
