QuickStart Programs

Our programs are life-changing for children and their families. Funding our QuickStart Early Intervention Program changes a child's developmental trajectory. Funding for our respite program gives parents a chance for a break at a local hotel and they receive funding for childcare while they are away. Our free workshops, with leading experts, gives parents valuable information to help make the best decisions for their child. Our Sensory Santa program gives families a chance for their child to see Santa in a sensory friendly and calm environment.
