We See Abilities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization based in The Woodlands, TX. We See Abilities enjoys providing a unique fundraising experience to support the special needs in the community.
WSA works with special needs by developing educational and recreational therapy. We See Abilities introduces the joy of sports and community activities to people with intellectual disabilities and we encourage the families and community to get involved! There is plenty of work to do for volunteers and supporters of this incredible movement.
We work hard to spread compassion and acceptance in a way that will unite the world. Our goal is to awaken everyone — and every community — to each person’s common humanity. This vision of inclusion starts at the local level. There are up to 4.5 million people with disabilities around the world. Here, we want to reach out to every one of them, their families and their communities. This will be done through a wide range of classroom education, health screenings, community activities, and constant advocating and fund-raising events. We have, and will continue to, create opportunities for families, community members, local leaders, businesses, law enforcement, celebrities, dignitaries and others to band together to change attitudes and support our Special Warriors.
We See Abilities has a large public health organization for people with intellectual disabilities.
Many of our Special Warriors come to us with severe health issues stemming from years of neglect. At the Special Needs Warrior Dash Event, we have community partners in the health care field on hand to assist families in getting free health exams and basic care. Our goal is to bring better fitness, nutrition and healthier lifestyles to everyone involved.
We See Abilities has always been based on the same premise: lasting change must start with young people. Every day we are working together to inspire long-term transformations in the actions and attitudes of the next generation. Our goal is to create an inclusive world.
Through community events and leadership activities, We See Abilities provides opportunities for young people to become leaders in their schools and communities. These activities help Future Warriors- with and without disabilities- find their voices by teaching them to become change agents striving for respect and inclusion. Our community events, sporting activities, and workout programs help everyone get healthier and in better shape – together! We base this on the evidence that students who “play unified” become better at helping others, sharing responsibility, and have integrity. Students involved in We See Abilities programs gain patience, embrace diversity and respect differences. This leads to higher levels of social and emotional security for everyone. They feel safe from teasing, bullying and social exclusion. Future Leader Warriors have the power to positively impact their communities by promoting social inclusion through our leadership program.
