It is the mission of the South Suburban Special Recreation Association:
"To promote the power of choice and to enhance the quality of life of individuals of all abilities, by providing accessible recreation in an environment that promotes dignity, success, and fun."

SSSRA is a therapeutic recreation program that is an extension of seven park districts and three recreation and parks departments. It is organized to provide individuals with disabilities or special needs, the opportunity to be involved in year-round recreation.

SSSRA programs are for individuals from birth through adult who receive special education services, vocational services, supported employment, or who have recreational needs not met by traditional park district programs. This could include individuals who have varying degrees of physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, emotional difficulties, hearing or visual impairments, and developmental delays.

Persons residing in the SSSRA member agencies are considered residents. These agencies are: Country Club Hills Park District, Hazel Crest Park District, Homewood-Flossmoor Park District, Lan-Oak Park District, Matteson Recreational Division, Oak Forest Park District, Olympia Fields Park District, Park Forest Recreation and Parks Department, Richton Park Parks and Recreation Department, and Tinley Park - Park District.
