The Laura Foundation is currently raising funds to build an adaptive sports and recreation center in the Mount Washington Valley.
Once complete, individuals living with disabilities in Maine and New Hampshire will have access to such things as social skills groups, indoor rock climbing, several days of horseback riding each week (during the warm weather months) and cross country skiing in the winter. In September 2011, a septic system was put in and the expansion of the property’s existing building began. Piping was put down in October 2011, followed by cement work, next came framing and finally a roof was put on. Now that the building has been expanded and winterized, final touches (such as a full kitchen and flooring projects) are slated for completion in the fall of 2013. Our next endeavor is the building of a barn. Ground is expected to be broken for this in the spring of 2014. From there, a multipurpose court and a playground will be built. Finally, the property’s existing botanical area, complete with a greenhouse, will be improved upon to offer therapeutic gardening.
