Inclusion - Our Mission

THPRD promotes the power of choice to enhance the quality of life for individuals of all abilities by providing diverse accessible recreation in an environment that promotes dignity, success and fun. Specialized Recreation offers programs designed for individuals with developmental disabilities (ages 13 and up).
