Financial Help for Therapy

Kiddos’ Clubhouse Foundation had a very successful 2009 in terms of our vision that “children with special needs of all income levels and abilities have equal access to critical therapies needed to make their lives better.”  In 2009 we awarded 10 scholarships in the total of over $22,000 for use of therapies and equipment.  The ranges of the children who received the scholarships ranged from 2 years old to 20 years old.  The children were from all over the state of Georgia – Savannah, Lilburn, Lawrenceville, Douglasville, Lithonia, Adairsville, Leesburg, Snellville and Acworth.  Some of the children awarded were from families who applied for the second and third time.

We are looking to keep the number of scholarships going if not more this year.  I have attached the flier to pass out to families who might need it.  The application is online at www.kiddosclubhousefoundation.org as well as to print, fill out and send in.  If you or any of the families have any questions about how to fill the application out or questions about the foundation, they can call 678.527.3224 x11 or email:  foundation@kiddosclubhouse.com for assistance.

Kiddos’ Clubhouse Foundation is awarding up to $2,500 scholarships to families who demonstrate the financial and therapeutic need for their children.  Our goal is to provide a scholarship each quarter.  The money can be used to pay for therapy services anywhere or therapy equipment.  We all know families who have struggled to pay for therapy and have had to stop due to financial reasons.  The application can be accessed on the web site:  www.kiddosclubhousefoundation.org

The deadline for the next scholarship is March 31st, 2010.  We have had past recipients use the monies for music therapy, ABA, speech therapy, occupational therapy, medical equipment and therapy equipment.

Please pass this information along to anyone who could benefit from the scholarship monies.  I have attached a single sheet to provide to parents with the basic information.  If there is a family that does not have access to a computer and needs an application, please have them call 678.527.3224 x11 and we will get an application mailed out to them.   If anyone needs help filling out the applications, please have them call 678.527.3224 x11.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at:  bdevore@kiddosclubhouse.com

For all the Directors of Special Education, this would be great information to provide to your ISTs.

Thank you!!
