Because of You...

Because of You...
If someone in your life helped you, here is your opportunity to pay it forward.

Do you know someone challenged by special needs? It is very likely as 1 in 6 children will receive a diagnosis of an intellectual or developmental disability, such as ADHD, autism, dyslexia, or other neurodiversities. Your contribution can be life altering for our most vulnerable members of the community.

Because of you…
Over 300 families each month have found answers and have been connected to resources in the community by calling the 211 special needs hotline.

Because of you…
Over 50 students have developed a passionate interest in an area where they can find success upon completion of high school. In fact, 100% of the graduates from Unicorn Village Academy have found jobs or continued their education in a collegiate program.

Because of you…
10 families with children newly diagnosed with autism have received parent coaching sessions to help them implement the teaching of crucial developmental skills in a child’s everyday routines.

Because of you…
Hundreds of families from the Keys to Vero Beach receive free developmental screenings and have been connected to resources and services aboard the Mobile Developmental Screening Clinics.

Because of you…
800 classrooms have received a diversity training and character development curriculum through our Creating Compassionate Children Campaign which was designed to help students create a culture of understanding, acceptance, inclusion, and respect by encouraging meaningful change in preschool and elementary school classrooms. In doing so, we are fostering caring peer support and eliminating bullying.

Because of you…
Over 300 professionals representing more than 160 organizations convene monthly as the Special Needs Advisory Coalition of Palm Beach County to tackle key gaps identified by the community such as: employment opportunities; supportive housing solutions; high quality respite care; advocacy and futures planning; and helping connect families seamlessly to community services.

Because of you…
Children and young adults with special needs, as well as their families, can grow strong, feel connected in the community, and live a life worth living
We need you to continue to be part of our C.A.R.E.S. community to ensure that these children and so many families here in our community do not remain isolated and underestimated. 
  • Connecting the community to resources
  • Advocating for inclusive opportunities
  • Respecting differences
  • Empowering individuals
  • Supporting success

The late Stanley Greenspan captured it best when he said “All children have within them the potential to be great. It is our job to create a great world where their potential can flourish.” Can we count on you to continue to be a champion for our most vulnerable youth and families with a tax-deductible end of year contribution or consider joining our community of guardian angels who are connecting to give monthly? Your support will ensure that children with special needs and their families can grow strong and live a life worth living.
