Crotched Mountain Foundation

Offering a Lifelong Alliance to People with Disabilities

2020 Goals:

Our programs include day and residential education at Crotched Mountain School on our beautiful campus in Greenfield, NH, autism services for young children at Ready Set Connect, accessible sports and recreation, and community-based services for seniors and adults with unique needs throughout New Hampshire.
