Your gift to SOAR Fox Cities can help adults living with disabilities, like Jon, live their lives at 100%. SOAR empowers people with varying abilities through eight programs including the third largest Special Olympics Program in the State of Wisconsin.

We all want to SOAR, some just need help spreading their wings!

Meet Jon!

Jon has been a SOAR member and participant for over 10 years! Jon was born with Down Syndrome and can't live alone, but that has never held Jon back! Jon regularly attends our social events including our monthly dances, and he is a Special Olympian in Swimming and Bowling! Jon is also active in the community and even volunteers in the office at SOAR for several hours every Wednesday (Wednesdays might be our favorite day of the week!). On top of all of this, Jon works several days a week at a local packaging company that supports his differing abilities.

Before Jon became a member with SOAR he didn't have the same opportunities, but he'll tell you - that all changed when he found SOAR.

Our mission is to empower people (like Jon) with different abilities to be their best possible selves. We accomplish this through eight different programs including Adult Education, Adult Social, Recreation & Respite, Family Programs, Community Education and Advocacy, Special Olympics, Summer & Fall Camps, and Youth Programs during and after school. We provide support and education so that our participants can do things like learn to prepare their own meals, manage their own finances, and have fulfilling social lives (like we all crave!).

Every year we serve over 1,200 individuals with a disability from throughout the Fox Cities and surrounding areas and touch the lives of 19,000 family and community members through our services and programs. We envision a world in which all people are seen for their ABILITIES, not just their disABILITIES. Within the walls of our offices and throughout the community, we aim to do just what our name says: Help our members and participants SOAR above the barriers their varying abilities create.

On our shoulders, they are able to spread their wings!
