All My Friends is a nonprofit organization in Grafton with the mission of ensuring the highest quality of life for those with disabilities through advocacy, community collaborations and socialization opportunities.

Earlier this year All My Friends completed an all-inclusive playground in Grafton’s Centennial Park.

The organization’s next project focuses on establishing sensory rooms, which are therapeutic spaces with equipment that provides those with special needs personalized sensory input. The environments can help individuals calm and focus themselves so they can be better prepared for learning or interaction.

Balance Inc. in Grafton has been announced as the first recipient of a sensory room.
