Let All The Children Play (LATCP) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives and dignity of all children by developing accessible playgrounds and inclusive recreation programs allowing children with disabilities the opportunity to experience play, side-by-side, with their able-bodied peers.
Let All The Children Play recognizes the right of everyone to be included through sports and play projects and programs that improve recreational opportunities for all children and young adults within the community.
Let All The Children Play understands the vital benefits of play and looks to level the playing fields for children of all abilities. Without accessible play, children are denied access to a social circle of peers along with being denied the physical and cognitive benefits that play provides.
