The Exceptional Foundationhttp://www.exceptionalfoundation.org/
Mission: The Exceptional Foundation is a non-profit organization which strives to meet the social and recreational needs of the exceptional population of the greater Birmingham area. We offer a variety of programs that improve the quality of life for exceptional people and their families through recreational, social, and other caring activities. About: Through the use of sports, games, activities, arts-and-crafts, and field trips, The Exceptional Foundation helps its participants achieve a higher level of confidence and gives the participants the opportunity to lead a more “normal” life. The activities that participants at The Exceptional Foundation engage themselves in are fun and entertaining, but the ultimate goal of any sport, craft, or field trip is to teach the participants social skills and cognitive skills, thus enabling the participants to attain the greatest level of independence that they have known. Our Goals: * To provide daily programs for our exceptional participants which include team sports, exercise classes, social events, music, and arts and crafts activities. * To provide a place for group support programs for families that include exceptional members. * To provide hands-on training for teachers, social workers and others who are involved with exceptional citizens.
