New England Healing Sports Association (NEHSA) is a charitable organization located at Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury, New Hampshire. Founded in 1972 as a weekend alpine ski program for people with physical disabilities, it serves those who want to enjoy active and independent lives through participation in sports. In the past 40 years it has grown to include a wide variety of physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities. NEHSA also takes pride in welcoming our disabled Veterans home, whether it is for therapeutic reasons or for rest and relaxation. In addition to adaptive skiing, both stand-up skiing and sit skiing, NEHSA also provides services for adaptive snowboarding, cross-country skiing, kayaking, rowing, tubing and water skiing. The services for these sports include access to specialized adaptive equipment, access to highly skilled coaches, and individual instruction. Through these programs, NEHSA enables its clients to gain a sense of independence, a positive attitude, access to social opportunities, and personal growth through the challenges that sport and recreation present.
