VOLUNTEERING FOR ACCESS ADVENTURE
ACCESS ADVENTURE is unique in the way we challenge the limits of disability through open space access, wilderness camping trips, therapeutic recreation and teaching people with disabilities the art of horsemanship through driving uniquely designed wheelchair accessible horsedrawn carriages.
ACCESS ADVENTURE has always been an all-volunteer organization, with no paid staff. Volunteers are the life blood of our organization. They have a wide array of talents that make it possible to do the work of Access Adventure. We are a very diverse group, united by a love of nature, affection for horses and a commitment to enrich the lives of people with disabilities.
It seems hard to believe that ACCESS ADVENTURE began back in 2005. Even harder to grasp is the fact that our busy organization continues to grow without ever having had a single paid employee. We remain an all-volunteer organization. Up and running three hundred and sixty five days every year, every holiday, come Hell or High Water, the gates to the ranch are opened, the horses are fed and cared for, and plans are made for the events that make the lives of people living with more than their fair share of challenges a little brighter.
