ABOUT US

 

 

 

The KASH Playground project was first initiated by a group of 6 individuals participating in Leadership Portage County program (a community based program designed to develop and foster future leaders within our community).  During the initial phases of the class project the group realized the need to make this playground a reality.  The group conducted a needs analysis for special needs playground by meeting with health and human services, education, health care and government officials.

 

 

 

The diverse group working on KASH Playground project is comprised of volunteers and leaders from education, health care, business, and government sectors.  Each individual brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the need as well as the impact an integrated playground can have on our community.  This group has worked closely with the Stevens Point Parks Department and City Council, which have unanimously agreed on the need and approved of the playground in Stevens Point.

 

 

 

Kareen Everman,  mother of a special needs child and a community advocate who personally understands the need for this playground, chairs KASH Playground.  Kareen's son Brett was disabled in a car crash 7 years ago.  Her son, along with 1,000 other special needs children and families in our community do not have a playground for which the children can meet and play with other children, regardless of ability.
