What do you want to do? That’s the first question we ask at Northeast Passage. And every answer is as unique as the individuals we serve. For some, it’s the pursuit of Paralympic Gold. For others, it’s the first step in returning to an active life after an injury. And for others, it’s the guidance, resources and equipment needed to experience the joy of recreation. For everyone, it’s a reflection of our core mission – empowering individuals with disabilities to define, pursue and achieve their goals.
Our name, Northeast Passage, represents the journey that is disability. We know this journey is an individual experience and that success means a different thing for each person. No matter where you are on this journey, we’re here to guide you, to provide tools, knowledge, opportunities and encouragement. Our mission is to help each participant accomplish their goal (or goals) so that they live beyond disability and THRIVE.
This section of our website is designed to give you a glimpse into the variety of things we do, the different people we work with and the settings we work in and the wide range of goals we have supported our participants to achieve.
