Community Outreach

Community outreach is the essence of giving and contributing to help the community thrive. For DASA, our outreach is in the disabled community – for children and adults who are different than able-bodied people yet have the same feelings, dreams, and passions as everyone else. They are ABLE, just different. And that is our message.

During our community outreach sessions, DASA talks to recently disabled patients in hospitals and/or rehab to share how we empower our athletes with physical disabilities to live to the best of their natural abilities with greater emotional and physical well-being, and we teach others how they can help them do the same.

What We Do

After a debilitating injury or an illness that leaves a child or an adult disabled, everything in their world changes, and everyone around that person is affected. Coping and knowing “where to go from here” can leave even the most high-spirited person feeling lost. That’s where we can help.

During outreach:

  • DASA team members talk to patients in rehab and provide information on sports after injury and how athletics can help them build strength, gain independence, and be productive members of society again.
  • DASA team members talk to therapists in schools, school districts, and rehabs to share how important it is that they let their patients know about sports after injury and the incredible benefits of adaptive therapy and athletics.
  • DASA community outreach if free of charge.

Since 1997, DASA has been helping disabled youth and adults get their lives back through adaptive sports and athletics and we love to share that message of hope.

Your Support of DASA is Critical to Our Athletes’ Lives

It is our mission that all individuals who live with a physical or visual disability, deafness, or hearing impairment have the opportunity to participate in DASA sports and fitness activities to improve self-esteem, growth, and well-being to live a happy, fulfilled life.

If you or someone you know has recently suffered an injury that has left him or her physically disabled, or you have a disabled child, contact the DASA team today and let us help with the transition.
