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


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 Railcats Night

September 3rd was Share night at the ballpark with the Gary Railcats! Ticket sales benefit the community of Sharing Meadows all while celebrating the man who started it all, Fr. Blaney! Fr. Blaney threw the first pitch!!!

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. 

Camp Sharing Meadows Bonfire

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.
