SteppingStones is a non-profit recreational center in Morgantown, WV for people with disabilities. Our goal is to help people achieve their maximum level of independence through innovative recreational activities. There are 69,220 disabled individuals over the age of five living within our service area. We help them focus on there abilities, not their disabilities. We have a state of the art facility that offers amazing year round programs such as: soccer, basketball, wheelchair basketball, summer/day camp, golf, computer classes, therapeutic riding, social activities, and a fully accessible swimming pool.
In addition, we have the Miracle League Baseball Field that accommodates any disability thus allowing wheelchairs, walkers, the visually impaired and mentally impaired, etc. to no longer sit on the sidelines.
Our programs offer a sense of pride, belonging, self-accomplishment and most of all fun and friends!!
We could not run our programs without all the wonderful volunteers we have here at SteppingStones. If you would like to help out just look over the schedule to see what programs are running at this time and give us a call to check availability. We will then set up an appointment for you to fill out paperwork, tour the facility, and set up a schedule that best suits you. All you need is a positive attitude and a willingness to have fun!
Please call Kim at 983-STEP(7837).
