HOPE offers activities, supplies adaptive equipment for checkout, and provides moral support to all HOPE families. It was started in 1992 as a mobility camp and expanded to year-round wheelchair sports and recreation program in 2006 with 5 families offering 2 activities. 

"Everyone deserves the opportunity to play sports and reap the benefits that come along with being part of a team. So many life skills are learned from being part of a team - sportsmanship, learning to win and lose, communication, and teamwork - along with an increase in self-esteem and confidence! We are very proud that our program is family-centered. We have extra adaptive equipment so that siblings, parents, and friends can play too!"
 -Adair Grommesh, Executive Director and Parent

Sled Hockey National Tournament!

The HOPE Hurricanes competed in the 2016 National Disabled Hockey Festival April 7-10 in Fraser, MI. The Hurricanes had some tough sledding (pun intended) going 1-3 after being moved up to the "B" division this year. The three losses came by a combined 4 goals to teams from NE Ohio, Nashville, and Colorado Springs. HOPE ended the tournament with a 6-1 victory over a team from Cincinnati, OH.

​the Hurricanes are already planning their redemption at next year's nationals in San Jose, CA.!

​Thank you to all who helped us get to Detroit. It was a wonderful experience.
