Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures, LA (501c3 Non Profit) has been formed as an outreach program from Acadiana Amputee Support Group. The vision of our group is to provide enough community involvement to see more people with disabilities “STEP OUT” away from the usual way of life, and “STEP INTO” a new way that can build confidence, provide spiritual uplifting, and have the opportunity to surround themselves with others who are experiencing the same challenges in life. Activities such as tennis, golfing, hunting, fishing, and canoeing, kayaking, camping, hiking, and summer camps has been organized to help bring our members together for memorable spiritual experiences of a lifetime. We have volunteers from many parts of our state of Louisiana that are ready at the drop of dime to lend a helping hand. The majority of these individuals has a child, a relative, a friend, or is disabled themselves. When people ask what ages we cater too; I always answer, “There is no age limit. We can cater from 2 years old to 102 years old.” OUR mission is to give back, share, encourage, and uplift ANYONE who may be dealing with or have dealt with disabilities. OUR TEAM is made up of GOD loving & sincere individuals who have a passion to uplift the principles our TEAM stands for.

Or Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures, LA would also welcome anyone or group, that may have a simple pond to fish or land to hunt, to take advantage of giving back and watching how the simple gift of kindness can make the world of difference in someone’s life. We are just a bunch of southern men and women wanting to do something good for those less fortunate. There is no limitation on the Lord so our travels aren’t limited either. God Bless.
