Strategy

Tommie Cares provides back-end services, support, training, and other resources to empower communities across the country to offer life-altering adventure activities to those with special needs.

The program is funded through donations, grants and sponsorships - with the goal of each local community becoming self-sufficient to support multiple events each year.
