Shane's Inspiration was co-founded in 1998 by Catherine Curry Williams and Scott Williams in memory of their son, Shane Alexander. The organization has evolved into a widely recognized, international non-profit creating Universally Accessible Playgrounds and educational programming that integrates children of all abilities socially, physically and emotionally, fostering acceptance, friendship and understanding. Shane's Inspiration's full spectrum service programs work in partnership with municipalities, community groups and families to ensure the successful fruition of universally accessible playground projects. The organization is the only nonprofit implementing full curriculum for ability awareness educational programming that works in tandem with inclusive playgrounds, creating a powerful global inclusionary awareness legacy, which transforms the lives of thousands of children each year.
Shane's Inspiration designs and helps build truly inclusive playgrounds. Together, we've worked with Shane's Inspiration to promote play for all children and their families. See the gallery of Shane's Inspiration playgrounds below, and find one near you.
