One of a Kind Therapeutic Grounds

The Need
Over the next two years, with philanthropic support, On With Life plans to transform 1.5 acres of green space into multi-faceted outdoor ADA-accessible therapeutic grounds that will provide sensory stimulation experiences, therapeutic challenges and respite for those On With Life serves and their families. The therapeutic grounds transformation will consist of multiple outdoor therapy areas including an enabling garden, music/zen garden, putting green, amphitheater, family shelter, butterfly garden and all-inclusive playground. The creation of this new outdoor space will have numerous physical, psychological and social benefits. Working within this type of outdoor setting helps rehabilitation feel less like therapy and more like real-life.
