Who We Are

SHARE Foundation is Where Community is Rooted in Love! We are a not-for-profit Christian organization serving the residential, vocational, & social needs of mentally challenged or other-abled adults. Our 185-acre community, Sharing Meadows, provides a tranquil place for other-abled adults to live, work, & relax in peace & dignity.

The history of the SHARE Foundation

History

In 1982, SHARE Foundation with the Handicapped was founded. It supported small agencies that worked primarily with handicapped people. SHARE Foundation gave, through its support of these agencies, much help to the other-abled. 

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to provide residential living, services & support programs for other-abled adults in a peaceful & loving community. We accomplish this mission through recognizing, respecting, & providing for the uniqueness of each individual.

The SHARE Foundation Board of Directors

Board & Staff

SHARE Foundation’s board of directors is made up of parents of other-abled people and of other interested volunteers representing industries such as finance, education, insurance, and construction.

Father Dennis Blaney

Father Blaney, a retired priest from Northwest Indiana, started the SHARE Foundation over 20 years ago. Understanding the burden parents faced, he became determined that his work be extended into the general community to serve all those in need.

Get Involved with SHARE

SHARE Foundation receives no government support whatsoever; we have always relied solely upon private donations & our own fundraising efforts to support our work. Our professional staff is augmented by hundreds of volunteers – friends, students, & professionals, who share their time & their talent.

Share Classic Golf Outing

Please join us at the Annual SHARE Classic Golf Tournament at the Golf Club! We are hopeful you will consider supporting this event again, as our Villagers have truly come to rely on funds raised from this community event. In fact, this is the only local tournament of its kind that fully supports our organization serving the residential, vocational, and social needs of mentally challenged or other-abled adults.

Leprechaun Hunt

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sharing Meadows had to make the difficult decision to CANCEL this year’s Leprechaun Hunt. If you give $25, you receive a hand written thank you from our Villagers. If you donate $50, you receive a really neat leprechaun bottle opener. AND if you give $100, your name will be entered in to a raffle of cash prizes totaling $10,000!! The drawing will take place on August 2nd at noon.

Camp Sharing Meadows

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend camp, whether that's a short weekend retreat or a long week of camp! Unfortunately, for some of our other-abled friends, they may have never had this experience.

Summer Camp & Weekend Retreats

More people than ever before are interested in attending summer camp & there is a great need for socialization, not just in the summer, but throughout the entire year. We currently hold monthly weekend retreats & a 6-week camp during the summer. The Share Foundation has hosted these camps over the past 40 years with the support of qualified staff, supportive service-minded donors, & our wonderfully enthusiastic campers.

Camp Sharing Meadows Activities

Camp Schedules

Take a look at some of our schedules from past camps! As each camp is special & truly has its own theme, we don’t have a generic schedule. (We’re really not a generic camp!) However, each Weekend Retreat & Summer Camp has a couple of activities that stay the same. We always have a DJ dance party on Tuesday night, our dress rehearsal for the camp summer play is on Thursday nights, & we have mass together on Saturday or Sunday during Mini-Camp Retreats.
The Share Foundation receives no government support whatsoever; we have always relied solely upon private donations and our own fundraising efforts to support our work.
