For over a decade, our organization has helped connect parents with resources to help children with Cerebral Palsy. Born out of our founder’s frustration that parents of children with CP had very few non-legal options at their disposal, MyChild connects all types of individuals and families connect with important resources from across the country. Though the Internet provides a wealth of information, it can be difficult to find what’s effective and what isn’t while going through hundreds, sometimes thousands, of irrelevant search results. Our goal is to reduce those issues and let any parent who calls us (800-692-4453) get immediate access to some of the best resources available.
With that said, we wanted to highlight a few unique resources we have come across that can be a big help to children with Cerebral Palsy. Don’t hesitate to fill out our online form or call us to find out about even more options in your state and beyond to help reduce the barriers in your child’s life. Our overall goal is for each child to reach their fullest potential and welcome the opportunity to speak with you!
Have a look at just some of the very cool organizations we have come across that can help:
The Sunshine Foundation: provides ‘dreams come true’ to children with chronic illnesses, serious illness, physical challenges and those children who have been abused between the ages of 3 and 18.
Special Spaces: a 501(C)3 non-profit that creates dream bedrooms for kids who are facing life-threatening medical illnesses or conditions.
Snap4Kids (Special Needs Assistance Program for Kids): founded in 1993 to assist the families of children with physical challenges through education, modest grants, information, advocacy, training and more.
The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project: provides resources, gently-used disability equipment and small grants.
Different Needz Foundation: a charitable organization created in 2009 that provides grants to individuals with severe, chronic disabilities that leads to developmental delays, requiring special care and treatment. Grants are provided once a year.
As with any charitable organization, the ability of the groups linked above to provide assistance can vary widely depending upon the funding available and their ability to respond effectively. We hope that our community has success with their requests but are unable to validate any of the services provided.
