Our Mission

We create fun and meaningful experiences that inspire inclusion and build trust.

How it started

The idea for HomeField began in early 2020 when Gage DeDominicis and Daniel Caridi were running volunteer fitness classes for individuals with special needs in a gym in Darien, CT. When Covid hit, and there was no way to run in-person programs, they had no choice but to run classes online. The need for virtual recreational and habilitative services quickly became apparent as the classes grew in size and popularity. Thus, HomeField was born. The goal now is to reach as many people as possible and make health and wellness accessible to everyone, no matter their ability or situation.
