Tinley Park-Park District is proud to be a partner with the South Suburban Special Recreation Association! SSSRA is celebrating 50 years of providing individuals with special needs therapeutic recreational programming! Enjoy this trip down memory lane!
The South Suburban Special Recreation Association (SSSRA) is a therapeutic recreation program that is an extension of eight park districts and three recreation and parks departments. It is organized to provide individuals with disabilities or special needs, the opportunity to be involved in year-round recreation.
SSSRA programs are for individuals from birth through adult who are in special education classes, sheltered workshops, or who have recreational needs not met by traditional park district programs. This could include individuals who have varying degrees of physical disabilities, mental handicaps, learning disabilities, emotional difficulties, hearing or visual impairments, and developmental delays.
It is the mission of the South Suburban Special Recreation Association:
“To promote the power of choice and to enhance the quality of life of individuals of all abilities, by providing accessible recreation in an environment that promotes dignity, success, and fun.”
