Shared Mission, Shared Values, Endless Opportunity

PossAbilities is coming off of another successful “A Night of PossAbilities” event at the Hilton Rochester-Mayo Clinic Area. A major reason for the success is due to all of our supporters, whether it’s a business, individual, or another non-profit. Through that support, PossAbilities has found a wonderful partner in Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch.

Ironwood Springs, like PossAbilities, has a mission to create opportunities for individuals with disabilities. It recently supported our gala through silent auction donation: a scholarship to one of Ironwood Springs’ 3-day ConnectAbilities Camp. The ConnectAbilities Camp is just one creative way Ironwood Springs is providing opportunities for individuals with disabilities. A representative recently shared this message with PossAbilities to help those who we’re connected with have a better grasp on exactly how those opportunities are created:

“Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch is excited to help with the Night of PossAbilities as we have a shared mission with PossAbilities in serving children and adults with disabilities.  Our ConnectAbilities camps provide opportunities for people with disabilities to have outdoor experiences and enjoy a community of people who understand them.  We have one-day camps during all seasons and also have summer overnight camps where campers get to try things such as our adaptive zip line, ride or paint horses, or try archery.  For the overnight camps, campers stay in our 27-room Miracle Lodge, where all rooms are accessible.  We also employ adults with disabilities through the ABC organization as they help clean all of the rooms in our Miracle Lodge.

Ironwood Springs is a 120-acre camp and conference center that provides programs for youth, people with physical or cognitive disabilities, families with autism, and military families.  We also rent our facilities for other groups such as Christian retreats and family reunions.  We have many activities available such as zip line, shooting ranges, low ropes challenge course, swimming pool and more.  We also have a full indoor equine center that offers camps for kids, trail and sleigh rides.”

In the coming months, PossAbilities and Ironwood Springs will continue to explore innovative ways to grow our partnership and, more importantly, live out our missions together to create opportunities for everyone to live their best life.
