OUR MISSION & VISION
We aim to provide first-class experiences for individuals with special needs that offer opportunities to have fun, stay active and meet new friends, all while giving their parents and caregivers a night of rest. We work in partnership with local churches to host our events and develop a volunteer base that is compassionate and energized about serving those with disabilities. Our volunteers are the backbone of our ministry which allows us to provide these life changing programs and offer an incredible experience on an individual, 1on1 scale. The All-Stars Club is quickly growing and we see our All-Stars Clubs expanding beyond our state border and impacting families in communities across the nation in the coming years.
The All-Stars Club is solving these issues for families:
- Parents need quality evening programs to keep their children active, engaged, and growing. Most programs end at 5pm and leave their children with little activity in the evenings.
Parents want a place where their adult child feels welcome, respected, and safe. A place where their child is engaged physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Parents need more opportunities for respite. More time to rest, to get errands done, and spend with their spouse, children, and other relationships which are often neglected.
Parents need the Church to be more active in their lives and to be a source of support.
The All-Stars Club is a 3-hour, monthly event that takes place at one of our church partner locations for friends with special needs ages 8 years and older. We provide a safe experience that centers on fun, friends and faith, all while parents have a few hours to relax and enjoy an evening of respite. These events provide volunteers buddies who ensure a fun and safe evening, while playing adaptive sports, making crafts, singing karaoke, and enjoying many other great activities together including a chapel service to finish the night.
NIGHT TO SHINE
Our annual prom in partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation hosts 125 adults with special needs for an unforgettable experience. The night includes a red carpet paparazzi welcome, formal dinner, dancing, karaoke, beauty makeovers, and plenty of party favors. This event brings in more than 250 volunteers to ensure that our guests are treated like kings and queens!
Barre Stars is the All-Stars fitness program designed specifically for our friends with special needs. Using an adaptive approach to Pure Barre’s technique, we maximize safety and effectiveness using small, isometric movements. Our program includes buddy volunteers to assist our barre stars in all movements and ensure safety. Each Barre Stars session includes 6 classes hosted on a weekly basis. Pure Barre certified teachers are highly trained in this technique and will lead your barre star during each class. Pure Barre is regarded as the top studio and industry leader in barre fitness.
In partnership with Feed My Starving Children and local churches, we host periodic mobile packs which gives our all-stars and their volunteer buddies the opportunity to pack meals for starving children around the world. We set up special stations so all-stars of every ability can contribute to the event’s mission. Each mobile pack event concludes with karaoke, crafts, and a chapel service.
