In 2012, Sabrina Cohen, Disabled Advocate and President of the Sabrina Cohen Foundation (SCF), approached her hometown with a novel idea:

Let’s create a Beach for ALL.

Today, SCF’s mission revolves around the foundation’s largest undertaking to date – a partnership with the City of Miami Beach that includes multiple initiatives to provide disabled individuals, veterans, children with special needs and the elderly the same perks of living in South Florida as everyone else – Access to the beach and ocean.

Welcome to Sabrina’s Adaptive Beach.
