Over the past several years, Backyard Players & Friends has grown to include The Backyard, an inclusive community center, as well as Love, Nana, a program to assist local families in need by providing clothing for newborns paired with an inclusive skills training program for BYP participants.
Each year, we seek to continue to build on our mission to make the world a more inclusive place. Late last year we developed crafting classes to create a place where participants learn crafting, retail, economic and marketing skills. In 2023, we launched The Front Porch Market, a unique storefront with inclusivity as its selling point. Throughout all this, we have worked to expand our community outreach programs while partnering with local schools and organizations.
Please join us for our fall fundraising campaign, which culminates on Friday, September 29, 2023, at our 2nd annual Oktoberfest.
