Northeast Passage Update

Northeast Passage has cancelled events through May 31 and our 20-person staff is working remotely. If you know anything about our team, you know this is challenging. We thrive in the team environment and our purpose is to work directly with people.

If our mission is about whole life health and fulfillment for people with disabilities, how can we continue to accomplish that in this format?

As soon as these decisions were made, we started brainstorming ideas for taking our programs and services online.  We know the power of recreation, sports and leisure. We know that everyone's abilities and interests are different. Everything here is curated especially for you by the Northeast Passage staff.

We're here for you. You can reach us by phone and leave a message (603-862-0070) or email at northeast.passage@unh.edu. Please take care and be well!
