About this organization






The mission of Care for Special Children is to help children with special needs thrive through compassion, advocacy, and resources. It’s also to give guidance and hope to parents and family members. Whether that’s setting up a child with integral services or even sending a pick me up self-care bag to reconnect, CARE is here for you, always.


Meyer and Victoria, with activist Michael Wahba, founded CARE for Special Children in 2013 so no family should ever feel alone. CARE rose as a safe haven a place of compassion, encouragement, and guidance, and a source of frequent events that shows others they are part of a community. Raising children with special needs is hard, and CARE is a loving center for parents, siblings, and your special child. CARE seeks to provide parents of children with disabilities with the necessary support, guidance and resources they need to function and thrive as a family – both by educating families about available services and offering hands-on help and support. CARE’s goal is to help individuals with disabilities maximize their independence and serve them in a culturally appropriate manner so that they can be fully integrated in their communities.
