We have to dream big in order to solve a big need in our own community.
National statistics show that nearly 1 out of 5 individuals has some form of disability. This results in nearly 34,000 individuals in our community who lack an area where they are free to experience the great outdoors in a safe and universally accessible environment. 1 out of every 10 Beavercreek School District students is a special needs child - over 1,000 children in all.
Owen’s Place, a non-profit organization (501(c)3 through its partnership with Greene Giving), is planned for a phased development schedule. Phase One, the central play space, is estimated to require over $350,000. The baseball diamonds, tree house and other areas will be covered in additional phases.
We have already received a great amount of support and information from the community, and we’re just at the beginning.
You’re support is greatly needed to keep our momentum going.
Big Efforts to-date from Local Organizations:
The Greene County Park District, dba as Greene County Parks & Trails, fulfills both its mission and levy commitment by collaborating with Owen’s Place to insure access to outdoor recreation for residents of all abilities throughout the region. The annual financial contribution to Owen’s Place is made possible by the park district levy that was approved by voters in November 2015.
Beavercreek Township Trustees and Park District Board have allowed usage of acreage in the largest and most fully equipped parks in the city.
Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities will provide a portion of the funding.
Greenebucs, dedicated to providing independence for individuals with disabilities, has indicated it will contribute both financial and physical support.
Beavercreek Rotary has donated the proceeds from its last 4 golf outings to this project.
Miami Valley Legislators have indicated their support of the idea and their willingness to try and secure partial funding through the state budget.
