Special Services to Children and Families

SSCF provided opportunities for 220 chil- dren with special needs to participate fully in the community, experience meaningful friendships and learn new skills. This year, thanks to a Chapman and Innovation Grant (UBC), we added a multi-sensory room, where children can experience self-control, autonomous discovery, and exploration to enhance self-esteem and reduce anxiety.
