It is with great excitement to announce that after a long 2 years, we were finally able to secure a site for our beloved Kid Quest Program! We are currently open 3 days a week and excited to welcome our participants back!
Kid Quest is an all-inclusive friendship group that is devoted to bringing unique experiences to children with unique needs. We believe it is essential for children with unique needs to participate in the activities of their choosing--from rock climbing to art class--to integrate into pre-existing mainstream recreational programs and to learn social skills with same age peers, through shared experiences.
We are in the middle of a soft launch and have a few spaces open. For more information on the program and for the calendar CLICK HERE
2022 Teacher Grants
Our Teacher Grant's closed October 31st. With donations like yours, we were able to fund $19,172 dollars out of the $25, 277 that was requested.
Kent, our amazing project manager, has been busy delivering the items to all the classrooms! It is such a wonderful feeling to be able grant these much needed items around the County. We would not be able to have this program without your support!
