NSSRA provides and facilitates year-round recreation programs and services for children, teens and adults with disabilities who live in the partner communities. NSSRA is an extension of ten park districts, two cities and one village in the northern suburbs of Chicago. This partnership includes the Park Districts of Deerfield, Glencoe, Glenview, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Lake Bluff, Northbrook, Northfield, Wilmette and Winnetka; the Cities of Highwood and Lake Forest; and the Village of Riverwoods. We have been creating an environment of belonging through play since 1970, and have the distinction as the first Special Recreation Association in the country.
NSSRA’s mission is to enrich the lives of people with disabilities in our partner communities through quality recreation services.
NSSRA’s vision is to be leaders in recreation by providing innovative and exceptional services for people with disabilities.
NSSRA’s full-time recreation staff members have college degrees in Therapeutic Recreation or related fields, as well as special certifications and professional accreditations.
