United Foundation For Disabled Archers

It is the mission of the UNITED FOUNDATION FOR DISABLED ARCHERS to promote and provide a means to practice all forms of archery for any physically challenged person.

The United Foundation For Disabled Archers (UFFDA) has been in existence since the fall of 1994. It was incorporated in the spring of 1997 and received its non-profit status from the IRS in November 1997. It currently has over 1400 members throughout the United States

The objective of the Foundation is to have an official UFFDA hunt in every state in the Union. In order to accomplish this, the organization is constantly searching for new physically challenged and able-bodied members to assist in this growth.

The ambitious task of this systematic growth requires the acquisition of dedicated volunteers who have exceptional leadership abilities. The United Foundation For Disabled Archers wishes to open the doors of archery and bowhunting for any physically challenged person. Even if they have no desire to hunt, we wish to provide an opportunity for them to experience the therapeutic benefits that modern archery can provide.

As membership and support grows, so will the number of tournaments, which will greatly benefit the physically challenged members. Contacts are being made with a variety of health care facilities that work with the physically challenged in search of new prospects. Rehab centers are being visited as members work with these institutions in an effort to make contact with perspective candidates for future UFFDA activities.

UFFDA is also working toward becoming a clearinghouse of information for archers with disabilities. We are assembling data on products and equipment that will be of assistance to these special people in the field and on the target range. We are gathering the names of accessible outfitters and private landowners that are providing additional hunting opportunities for our disabled members. As our numbers grow, the networking will multiply and more of our needs will be met.

As the numbers of both physically challenged and able-bodied members grow, we will continue to strive to create new opportunities for our membership to experience and enjoy the benefits of modern archery.

Note: The United Foundation For Disabled Archers follows the guidelines established by the Disabled Veterans of America to determine whether or not a person is physically challenged. Our objective is not to discriminate or judge, but only to serve needs of archers with disabilities. It is our hope that those with lesser needs will join the organization as support people and will endeavor to assist those with more physical limitations.

Mike Bell, or staff member,
My name is Randy Cox,
I'm a disabled sportsmen, and I'm a Global Moderator for the Disabled Sportsmen of America, and I don't know if Mike is posting a url to our site, or if he's posting it in behalf of another DSA site. Our web address is disabledsportsmenofamerica.org If this be the case, would you please use our correct address, so we can help to get the disabled or terminal sportsmen, whether man, woman, or child, back into the Great Outdoors.
Thank You,
