- To provide opportunities for leisure through accessible, age-appropriate activities
- To facilitate meaningful conversations with families who understand the challenges of life with disability
- To provide respite for primary caregivers of those with disabilities
- To provide opportunities for churches to become involved with brothers and sisters with disabilities
