Special Kids is a Christian non-profit providing out-patient pediatric therapy (including occupational, physical and recreation therapy and speech language pathology), social services, and skilled nursing to special needs children ages birth to twenty-one years in and around Rutherford County. Special Kids' goal is that no family be denied services due to lack of funding or access to services. The grant is to provide funding to start two new programs, Friends for Life and Camp Ability, in order to improve the care and support of children with special needs. 90% of the 40 families served through Friends for Life will report an improved mental state and that the program is beneficial. Camp Ability will serve 25 children for eight weeks during the summer. 90% of parents served through the Camp will report that the program is beneficial and that their child has improved at least 1 level in participation and skills.
