Frequently Asked Questions
When will the playground be finished?
We hope to have the playground built and complete sometime during the summer of 2018. With the completion of the carousel/merry-go-round and hopefully a brand new inclusive bathroom this fall.
What happens after the playground is built?
We won't stop there. We plan with our annual fundraisers and other organizational support plan on building new playgrounds in other area's of WNY. We have started the process again at The Arc Erie County Green Acres school were Mason and Matthew attend school. Contact the foundation if your town would like to inquire on how to build play spaces the right way, the INCLUSIVE way.
We will also through our fundraising efforts role out hopefully in 2019 a grant platform for College seniors looking to advance there education in the fields of Special Education and/or pediatric physical or occupational therapy. We are looking to partner up with Canisius College for this which is Jason's Alma Matar.
Family assistance is always a priority for us! Aid parents both financially and emotionally as they try to weed their way through the rigors of having a "limited edition" child.
What types of disabilities will the playground account for?
Our playground will be able to accommodate children AND adults with mobility, sensory, strength, and other limitations. There will be equipment that can accommodate both adult and child sized wheelchairs, an area specially designed for autistic children, and other equipment designed for assisted and supported play. See some of the renderings in our Gallery.
