Special Kids has been raising funds to contribute toward the building of a Universal Abilities Playground. The playground will include structures and equipment that enable children with all ranges of abilities to play and explore in ways that have been limiting in the past. The park will include grassy play areas, shaded and “mist” cooling areas, family picnic grounds, and an array of amenities tailored to the special needs family. There will be attractions that will cater to the varied needs of children with all ability levels, focusing on sensory, and kinesetic activities, and provide activity areas for those with mobility issues as well.

Welcome to Special Kids Foundation!
Our mission at "Special Kids" is to promote the education, awareness, and success of all families with children who have Special Needs of every kind. We aim to provide support, friendship, and a “one-ness” with these incredibly challenged families, while providing them with the resources to navigate the difficult road of raising these "Special Kids" to be productive, happy, successful adults, regardless of their disabilities. We strive to serve the whole family, and to aid in the preservation of each family as a working, functioning unit.
Building "Special Kids" will restore a semblance of a more normal family life to these already overburdened families. Our facility will house the therapies and specialists needed, all in one, close to home location, to serve the families who live here in East Contra Costa County. These families will then be empowered to work on revitalizing their over-stressed lifestyle, and will be able to restore the relative calm that would otherwise have prevailed in their homes.
