Did you know....
Depression is very high among the special needs population, and one main reason is because of the lack of social activities and bonding that occurs through social interactions.
Your donations and volunteering can help to eliminate the loneliness and depression that affects this special population.

Outward Adventures Mission...
Giving individuals with special needs the opportunity to expand their social circle through activities that incorporate the whole individual and creates motivation within the individual to grow and mature socially, while, at the same time, giving them the independence and freedom to be themselves.
Q: Who can participate in Outward Adventures?
We have monthly parties for our participants who are aged 15 years and older.
Q: What do you do at your monthly parties?
We eat, have dances, karaoke, game nights, Bingo, concerts, and more!
Q: Do my parents/caregiver have to stay with me?
We encourage parents/caregivers to do what feels right to you. We have many parents who drop the participant off and pick them up at the end. We have some parents who choose to stay and volunteer to help. It's completely up to you!
Q: How do I know my child will be safe if I leave?
We take security and safety of our participants very seriously. We employ a sign in/sign out system, and participants are only allowed to leave with someone who parents/caregivers have previously named as okay.
Q: How much does it cost?
We try to keep the costs on our participants as low as possible. We charge $5 per person to enter, and this includes all activities for the evening.
Q: What if I am nervous about coming the first time?
We all get nervous when we try something new, that is a normal feeling. We want everyone to feel comfortable and we will help you feel safe and to have fun in whatever way we can!
Q: What if no one else has special needs like me?
Great question! You know what, all of our participants have some type of special need- and no one cares! We just have fun together and enjoy making new friends!
