The Future Program delivers crucial life-enriching services, education, and self-esteem to children.

The Future program focuses on providing socially inclusive experiences and activities for children with special needs and their families such as sensory friendly movie screenings, holiday celebrations, art projects, and access to special events.

Our programs help children gain mobility, confidence, freedom, independence, and the chance to join in the life of their community by actively participating in socially inclusive, sensory friendly and family friendly activities and events.

Our friendly staff and volunteers would be glad to share with you about current activities and events for your child with special needs and your family to participate in. Want to know about upcoming opportunities? Contact us today by email or call 760-773-9800.
