Why It Matters
There are over 4.1 million parents in the U.S. living with disabilities with children younger than 18. However, there is still the pernicious belief that parents with physical or intellectual disabilities cannot adequately care for and raise their children, leading to an 80% loss of custody rate.
Parents with disabilities often face biases that affect their confidence to seek help while needing assistance with various parenting tasks, including enjoying recreational activities with their children. helping their children with homework, attending conferences, showing up to last-minute meetings at their children’s school, planning special events for their children, and other recreational activities to name a few
We believe that every parent and child deserves support from their community no matter their circumstances. Your Special Day was created to recognize and uplift these special kinds of families with supportive services and access to a better quality of family life.
Help us create a day of fun, excitement, and absolutely no worries for a deserving boy or girl!
We are always in need of gifts and supplies for the children and parents that we serve. Help us provide them with special memories. Whether you consider a gift large or small, we believe all gifts we receive impact our local communities.
