What makes KISMIF so unique?
There are very few recreational opportunities for disabled people to enjoy and even fewer outdoor recreational opportunities. KISMIF’s primary focus is the outdoors. It is one of a few non-profits in the country that provides quality outdoor recreation for disabled individuals. There are currently no other programs of it’s kind in Nevada.
Vision for the Future
There is an overwhelming need for a dedicated building that provides comprehensive resources for individuals with disabilities, including:
•Outdoor and indoor sports and recreation programs and activities
•Support for disabled and their families
•Advocacy (the rights of disabled individuals need to be protected)
•Legal and accounting assistance
•Home modification grants and assistance
•Access to healthcare
•Child care services
Outdoor Wheelchair Sports Include:
Over the Line Tournaments
With five part-time staff members, as well as strategic alliances with multiple organizations and businesses, KISMIF's recreational programs include:
Skiing (water and snow)
KISMIF is about socialization through outdoor recreation programs offering opportunities for disabled individuals and their family members to meet new people, develop interpersonal skills, gain self-confidence, reduce stress, improve social or communication skills, and most importantly, keeping it simple and fun!
