The Society was founded in 1947 as the “Stanislaus County Society for Crippled Children and Adults, Inc.” Through several name revisions, we have remained an independent, locally supported organization providing services and programs designed to enhance the quality of life for physically-challenged individuals of all ages and all disabilities who reside in Stanislaus County. Over these past 60 years, our funding and support came from private sources, which have enabled us to provide a wide variety of programs and services.
We provide recreational and educational programs for adults and children with disabilities at a low cost or no cost! This includes; bowling, water skiing, snow skiing, Special Needs Ball (prom- once a year), Adapted Bike Camp, golf and baseball coming in Fall 2013 with The Miracle League of Stanislaus County.
We also have the largest Loan Closet in Northern/Central CA, loaning out adaptive medical equipment to those in need; walkers, wheelchairs, commodes etc!!!
