THE NORTH METRO MIRACLE LEAGUE
ENTERING OUR THIRD DECADE OF SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

20 YEARS AGO, WE STARTED WITH 22 KIDS PLAYING BALL ON A BORROWED DIRT FIELD.  TODAY WE HAVE OUR OWN MULTI-PURPOSE ADAPTED SPORTS COMPLEX / LEARNING CENTER, NORTHSIDE HOSPITAL FIELD. THEIR FOUNDATION GOT FUND RAISING OFF TO A ROARING START WITH A $250,000 DONATION.

IN 2004 WE CUT THE RIBBON ON WHAT HAS BECOME A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AWARD-WINNING PROTOTYPE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAMMING. SPECIAL ED. PROFESSIONALS AND CERTIFIED THERAPISTS HAVE DESIGNED AND FACILITATED A BROAD SPECTRUM OF PROGRAMMING THAT SERVES OVER 500 AREA FAMILIES.

BECAUSE OF OUR PROGRAM DIRECTORS SKILL SETS AND EXPERIENCE, AND A CADRE OF DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS, WE ARE ABLE TO FIND JUST THE RIGHT PROGRAM AND LEVEL OF CHALLENGE FOR EVERY CHILD AND YOUNG ADULT THAT COMES OUR WAY. ADULTS AND SENIORS ARE MOST DEFINITELY INCLUDED IN ALL SPORTS AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. OUR OLDEST ATHLETE IS 87 AND A HOLY TERROR WHEN SHE WALKERS UP TO HOME PLATE.

OUR ULTIMATE GOAL IS INCLUSION, CHANGING THE SOCIAL ARCHITECTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY. THE BUDDY PROGRAM (VOLUNTEERS) PROVIDES THOUSANDS OF HOURS OF MEANINGFUL COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS. AREA HIGH SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL AND FAITH BASED YOUTH GROUPS ARE THE ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS OF CHANGE SHARING THE GIFT OF TIME AND FRIENDSHIP.

AN AMAZING 20 YEAR ADVENTURE, SO MUCH ACCOMPLISHED AND SO MUCH MORE TO DO.
