Stuff About Me:

Hello!

Please support me in my effort to help caregivers of children with disabilities have special moments that most of us may sometimes take for granted.

Small Miracles in Life Exist (SMILE Mass) is a 501 C3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing happy, healthy memories to families living with children or adults with disabilities.

Our mission is to create a day trip or a vacation opportunity without barriers by working with recreational facilities to provide accessible equipment and opportunities for anyone with mobility issues.

A vacation with children can be an exercise in logistics — transportation, housing, meals and fun experiences. For families with a disabled member, the complexity and difficulties are magnified to such a degree that, for most, a vacation becomes impossible to imagine much less accomplish.

Caregivers of children with disabilities need additional support to alleviate the emotional and physical stresses, as well as the financial burdens that they face. Studies show that parents with special needs children spend 20 or more hours a week performing home health care for their children and have more financial strains that can cause increased stress that can lead to poorer emotional and physical health.

                                                                                                                Our Mission

To offer state of the art services to accommodate as many families as possible by maintaining facilities that meet Universal Design Standards. SMILE Mass will strive to become widely known as the leading resource for handicap accessibility in vacation rentals. Furthermore, we will also work with the surrounding recreational facilities to provide accessible equipment, walkways, etc. like the current beach wheel chair project on Cape Cod.
