Jacob's Chance is unique in that our programs are open to all youth and young adults who can benefit, from 5-35 years old.  We are not diagnostic, income, or ability level limited. Programs are operated with a focus on inclusion, where volunteers (we call them "buddies") without disabilities play alongside those with diverse abilities.  Programs are adapted to meet the needs of each player or participant. As a result, we all become more understanding and accepting of diversity in physical, intellectual, and developmental abilities.
