The Hometown Foundation, Inc. began with a mission to raise money for Special Olympics and Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities. Although it has now grown into a foundation with five distinct and varied pillars of interest, we remain true to our roots.
To date, The Foundation has raised millions of dollars for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities or in Need. Through our signature event, The Dream Ride Experience, we bring people together from all over the world to celebrate inclusion and understanding. The Hometown Foundation, Inc. is proud to support Special Olympic Athletes by bringing them to one-of-a-kind events, leadership conferences and teaching them about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Amazingly, because of your generosity, The Hometown Foundation Inc. was even able to send the Special Olympics Connecticut Team to the 2018 USA Games in Seattle.
However, our initiative doesn’t end with individuals with disabilities. We are devoted to helping all those who are facing challenges. In 2018 we started an annual tradition to bring thousands of turkeys to families in the greater New York City area who are unable to have their own Thanksgiving dinner. We also sponsor toy drives for underserved children during the holiday season and provide support animals and resources to those suffering from PTSD.
