Executive Director Jane Danielson founded Beaches For All (BFA) as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Physically Disabled for over twenty years, Ms. Danielson created BFA after recognizing that throughout all of Florida’s beaches spanning over 1,700 miles, not one of them was truly disabled-accessible. She quickly learned that none of these beaches were fully accessible to the water, offered necessary inclusive services for the disabled of all ages and the seniors, or provided a safe means for traversing and fully utilizing the beach and ocean. This has had untold consequences on the psyche and spirit of the physically disabled population
Ms. Danielson founded Beaches For All to rectify this unfortunate and unnecessary reality.
As a newly formed 501(c) 3 non-profit, BFA is absolutely committed to provided the physically disabled beach access We do so by identifying human needs unique to the disabled, bringing them to light, and actualizing real world solutions for those needs. It was out of this mission that the BFA complex was born. Beaches For All has undertaken the creation of a critical facility specially equipped to reduce unnecessary barriers to restricted beaches for underserved individuals who are physically disabled.
Our primary responsibility, and long-term goal, is to create a sustainable model ( prototype) in Florida for national duplication.
Conforming to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), this initiative will provide the only truly disabled-accessible beach facility in the State of Florida, with unprecedented access to highly specialized services and facilities for the disabled of all ages and seniors. Serving as a practical and inspirational exemplar for national duplication, our ultimate goal is to improve the common good by addressing this problem in a new and effective manner which will not only result in significant social benefits for these individuals, but also our communities by stimulating local economies. The construction of this flagship project is projected to be completed over three years and cost approximately $5 million
