North Carolina Handicapped Sportsmen, Inc. (NCHS) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of handicapped and able-bodied individuals. Its purpose is to promote friendship, fellowship, mutual understanding and cooperation among handicapped people and able-bodied associates by encouraging them to participate in outdoor recreation.
Special events will be scheduled, organized and conducted by both handicapped and able-bodied members of this organization. NCHS will work closely with the North Carolina Wildlife Recourses Commission (NCWRC) and other interested organizations to promote and support these special events. Events will include but are not limited to special hunting, fishing and shooting events.
While social and recreational activities centered on these sporting events are encouraged, we do not claim in any way to provide a professional level of medical or rehabilitative care to the participants. Participants will be required to sign a waiver of liability for any events sponsored by NCHS.
To further our cause, NCHS will work closely with the NCWRC and other governing bodies to ensure that new facilities meet ADA standards and existing facilities be made as accessible as possible. There are many individuals whose quality of life can be enriched by our organization. NCHS will reach out to individuals via website, special events, outdoor expos and appropriate media coverage.
New membership is encouraged to ensure the continuing productivity of our organization and help further our ability to promote outdoor recreation for handicapped individuals in North Carolina.
Everyone can enjoy the outdoors, some just need a little more help.
