For 25 years, Special Kids Special Families has served the Pikes Peak region and has been committed to providing care and respite for those with emotional, cognitive, and physical disabilities. SKSF promotes, strengthens, and supports children and adults living with disabilities and specialized care needs throughout their life span. Every month, hundreds of children and their caregivers are supported by services and guidance provided by Special Kids Special Families.
“Strong, healthy families are at the core of our goals and values,” said Derek Wilson, Director of Development and Communications. “The kids we look after are unique and require specialized care and attention. Moreover, we provide a break and support that parents need, while giving the child a chance for fun and challenging activities in a learning environment.”
Laughter really can be the best medicine! The care and respite provided to families served by Special Kids Special Families is invaluable. These families are faced with hefty challenges on a daily basis that at times can feel overwhelming. The Night of Comedy event provides that “medicine” and levity that can be equally priceless to those who are investing in the good work and mission that SKSF provides.
One of our most important goals at Zachs Place is working on life skills, which is very important to families and the development of the children. Additionally, we dont turn away anyone for the inability to pay. The cost for the type of care we provide is more than $30 per hour, but our typical family can only afford $5/hr. Thats why the dollars raised from the Night of Comedy are so vital-so we can continue to serve more families with the highest quality of care, said Kevin Porter, SKSF Executive Director.
