Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a free weekday setting for pre and post graduate individuals with developmental disabilities to explore various art forms, education, business, and fitness, while developing bonds of friendship amongst each other and members of the community at large. Our approach engages participants with hands on programming with instructors in specific areas, and with volunteers in others. Through these programs our participants become embedded in the community sharing their talents and abilities while forging new relationships and friendships with people who might never be touched by this special needs group of people.

Description

Zack's Place (ZP) is a 501(c) (3) community enrichment center whose mission it is to empower people of all ages with special needs to express themselves through art, music, dance, literacy, and athletics while developing bonds of friendship. Programs are provided at no cost to participants, their parents, or guardians. In pursuit of fellowship and creative outlets for their disabled son, ZP was founded by the parents of a special needs teenager eight years ago. In subsequent years, event income and strong donor-based support facilitated the ongoing delivery and growth of the enrichment programs.
