With a heavy heart we have temporarily closed our doors due to lack of funding and volunteers.
We know that many children and families depend on us and we are working hard to re-open.
This was not a choice we wanted to make and We have not given up.
We are still a non-profit we just no longer have a physical place to meet.
WHAT WE DID AND ARE TRYING TO RE-OPEN
At our specially designed therapeutic setting, we provided resources, social opportunities, networking, social play, a place to practice therapeutic techniques, and most importantly a place to have fun.
Play is the work of children, and it is through play that children develop sensory, gross motor, fine motor, cognitive language, social, and emotional skills. Our Small play facility was made up of 6 main areas the Quiet Room, Social Play/Fine Motor area, Pillow Pit, Teen spot, Art room, and Baby Play.
To use our facility you do did not need insurance or a referral, since we did not provide childcare or direct therapy. All we required is that people brought their Extraordinary Children and their sense of imagination.
We offered play groups, parent groups, birthday parties and more.
We need help....
We need Board Members and Committee general, legal, marketing, fundraising, and accounting- All that is required is meeting 4 times a year and about 3hours of volunteer work each month.
