With your help, OUR NEW SCHOOL PLAYGROUND will be a reality in 2017!
The ABILITIES FIRST SCHOOL opened its doors in November 2015. The state-of-the-art school serves over 100 children, from 22 school districts throughout the Hudson Valley region.
Play is important to the social and physical development of all children, but most especially at the Abilities First School where students may be challenged by moderate to severe cognitive delays, visual or hearing impairments, physical, medical and behavioral challenges, as well as intellectual or developmental disabilities.
You can help create the environment of "play" you once enjoyed with a gift to build an adaptive playground for the students at the Abilities First School.
Please share and spread the word about the FUTURE STEPS PLAYGROUND CAMPAIGN.
Sponsorship and naming opportunities are available. Contact Melissa McCoy, Chief Advancement Officer at 845.485.9803 ext. 223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
