What we are:
Hope's Way is a FREE recreation center for special needs children and their families. This includes physically, mentally, or emotionally challenged individuals of all ages. Though we are for special needs we encourage field trips from schools or youth groups. Activities include horse and pony rides, hay rides, stagecoach rides, petting the large variety of animals, playing on the playground, and mining for gold and using the money that you traded to shop in the ever-expanding Western Town!

Our history:
Organized in January of 2002, Hope's Way is a central Indiana not for profit recreation center whose mission is to provide a cost-free place of recreation and respite for special needs children and their families from underserved communities. Our "special needs" umbrella includes children who are:

-At risk
-Health impaired
-Physically disabled
-Developmentally disabled
-From low-income families
-Children of incarcerated parents
-Families of deployed military

Richard and Elizabeth Shafer have dedicated their twenty-six acre ranch to building a beautiful facility that enables them to share their many blessings with other members of their community.

In addition, we like to continously thank our sponsors and donors! Visit our sponsor page here.

Also, thank you to all the Boy Scout Troops for their contributions!

And thank you to all our volunteers!
