WHAT ABOUT THE SCHEDULED SUMMER PROGRAM? Special Reach is committed to developing the social skills of the precious children we serve and providing respite for their caregivers. We consider these children, their caregivers, our donors, volunteers, staff and friends all valued members of the Special Reach family. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has kept us from interacting with our Special Reach family since March 2020. We fervently hoped for a safe and modified reunion in the summer that meets all relevant policies and guidelines for best practices as well as a 14 day decline of COVID-19 cases as stipulated by the venue for our summer program. Unfortunately, we do not anticipate that these guidelines - especially the decline in number of cases will happen in time for our summer to begin. It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of our 2020 Summer Enrichment Program. Please see our new summer programs below.
WHAT ABOUT THE ANNUAL GALA? The 5th Annual Gala Honoring Nancy & Ed Kelley has been postponed to October 15, 2020 at 6:00 PM.
WHAT PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE? We have developed exciting new programs to serve families of children with special needs during these challenging times:
Multi - Entertainment (M.E.) Kits: These are carefully designed kits packed full of entertaining, sensory, and relaxing activities and equipment that you can use in your home, backyard or neighborhood.
ZoomTastic Sessions: These are a wide array of sessions that are tailored to the needs and wants of our participants and their families via Zoom. Sessions include practicing conversation skills with our speech therapists, family game nights, making simple snacks, simple and fun scientific discoveries, a variety of simple exercise sessions, and of course learning new dance steps.
Friday Dance Party: This is a great opportunity to catch up with friends via Zoom and dance! Dance!! Dance!!!
