Special Olympics

The Special Olympics were directly responsible for the founding of A Better Way of Ohio.

Founder and CEO, Clarence Kirkpatrick originally volunteered for the Special Olympics and was so moved by the experience that he made the special needs community his life's work.

The sense of accomplishment, camaraderie and community found at Special Olympics events led to those principles infusing every aspect of A Better Way of Ohio. Participation is used as a tool for socialization, which is one of the most important differences we can make in our client's lives.

We participate in Special Olympics events four or five times per year. This is a perk for our client's, not a core activity. Our daily activities are highlighted by The Special Olympics, which then in turn brings renewed energy back to the daily living.
