Thank you for supporting and investing in Indiana’s children with special needs!
About Special Kids (ASK) helps families find hope when they learn their child has a special need. We help them understand they are not alone, help ease the burden and find appropriate resources. ASK staff are parents of children with special needs and have traveled this road and understand the unique stress parents go through. With your help, we can reach more families and give them the support and tools to live better lives. Any size gift is appreciated and needed. Our parent-to-parent support touches more than 2,500 families every year, thanks to generous donors like you.
