WHO WE ARE

Our Story

For over 20 years we have been helping give people of all abilities a better life. With recreation, therapy and continued support, we bridge the gap between disability and belonging.

With headquarters in Sun Valley, Idaho, and programs taking place nationally, we help transform lives across the country. Our programs strategically combine outdoor recreation activities with therapeutic processes to help all participants confront current struggles and develop skills to find success in daily life.

HG prides itself on serving participants nationwide of all race, color, religious creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, socioeconomic status, and marital status.
