Who We Are

Check out our feature on “Joy In Our Town” to learn more about us!

Families of children with special needs are like butterflies: they flutter their unique, beautiful, yet fragile, wings to stay in flight and moving forward. Weeks, months, and maybe, even years, may pass before every member of a special family can adjust to their metamorphosis.

In each person’s own way, and time, the walls come down, the darkness begins to fade, and a beautiful butterfly emerges, fluttering through a new, once unimagined, beginning.

Our mission is to improve the lives of children with special needs and their families through support, advocacy and innovative educational and outreach services.

Our focus is to support these butterflies, fluttering families, so that they may enjoy typical childhood moments together.

We want everyone to feel valued, respected, and included in the community.
