We believe that a moving body is a healthy body. Moving your body not only improves your physical health, but exercise also improves brain function, structure and connectivity. SMILE Mass will offer alternatives in each of our classes to meet each client at their current level while working with them to grow stronger and more confident.
SMILE Mass is in the process of creating a Community within a Community! This property will have an adaptive and inclusive outdoor recreation area, offering outdoor recreational opportunities to able-bodied individuals as well as individuals with disabilities.
Your support allows us to fulfill our mission and continue to grow the programs that have been impacted by COVID-19. In an effort to support our clients, SMILE Mass has created a GIVING TREE full of adapted equipment. Your year end gift will leave a legacy you and your family can be proud of.
SMILE Mass has several pieces of equipment for families to borrow and take anywhere with them. Our current inventory includes: floating beach wheelchairs, Rifton bath chair, basic white bath chair with back, high performance Hoyt running chair, blue Freedom running stroller, adapted bike (delivery not available, pick up only), hoyer lift (provide your own sling) and a portable ramp.
The SMILE Mass Beach House is a fully handicapped accessible space, that is aesthetically pleasing. It offers families equal opportunity, with minimum barriers. Everyone deserves to relax, have fun with friends and family, play outside and soak up the sun despite disability.
That is what our home offers!
