Northeast Ohio Recreational Opportunities for the Mentally and Physically Challenged


A few months ago, North Coast Education Services participated in the Connecting for Kids 5th annual Meet and Greet event. We had a wonderful time mingling with families and fellow organization committed to help struggling students succeed.

While we were there, we learned about a fantastic organization:

Special Stars of the North Coast

a recreational group for the mentally and physically challenged

Based near Cleveland, OH, the non-profit organization provides year-round activities for members of all ages. Here are some of their activities:

Bowling League (September – April)
Family Bowling
Bowling Banquet
Theatrical Plays
Lake Erie Crushers Games
Lake Erie Monsters Games
Steppin’ Out Concert
Raisin’ Canes & Dance
Halloween Parties
Christmas Parties

Annual dues for the organization are only $1 and most of the events are free. Special Stars strives to “keep the price low and the fun high”. The non-profit posts their latest events and activities on their personal Facebook group page.
