Inclusion Support

Not seeing an adaptive program that fits your needs or interests? Does your family member with a disability want to participate in general Parks and Rec program but need support? No worries, we are here to help!

The Chaska Parks and Recreation department partners with Reach for Resources to provide inclusion facilitators for those needing support in our programs. This means that a staff person will be scheduled to attend the program with the person needing assistance. Families should note this at time of registration and we will follow-up to discuss details. 

Reach for Resources

Reach for Resources provides inclusion facilitators for children and adults with disabilities participating in any of our Chaska Parks and Recreation programs. For special needs questions and inclusion requests, please email Joan Seedorf or call 952-227-7760 to discuss the needs of the program participant. Please register and call early to allow for adequate time to process the request.
