Leprechaun Hunt supporting Share Foundation
Leprechaun Hunt

About the Cause

Share Foundation was founded September of 1982. It first began as a camp for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, or other-abled adults. Fr. Blaney founded these camps and it was through these opportunities that he saw how important community was to his friends. It was then that he decided to pursue a full community of other-abled people. After much fundraising, he and the board of directors of Share Foundation bought 185 acres of undeveloped farmland located in rural La Porte County, IN. It was that that the dream blossomed! Now, we currently have 15 homes, a large camp building, Forcey Guest House, as well as the new John Largura Family Senior Center. We are now a thriving community that 30 other-abled adults call home. 

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Share Foundation operates solely on its fundraisers and generous donations from community members and businesses. Your gift today is used for the direct benefit of our Villagers and Campers. Donations are used for upkeep of their homes, for food on their tables, and for activities that increase their quality of life. Not only does your gift benefit our Villagers and Campers, but we truly believe it benefits the community. The Villagers of Sharing Meadows bring great joy to everyone they meet. They truly do not know a stranger. The love that they spread all across Northwest Indiana is an incredible gift to many, and your support gives them that opportunity!
