Mission Statement

Extreme Kids & Crew combats the stress and isolation faced by children with disabilities and their families through play, arts and movement programming, partnerships with cultural and therapeutic institutions, parent meet-ups and more. Our goal is to join with other organizations to fund a flagship center where architects and designers can show off what a truly inclusive building would look like. The building would serve artists, musicians, doctors, healers, thinkers and researchers, allowing them to learn and be inspired by children who think, feel, and move in unique and sometimes startling ways. Most importantly, the building would serve as a second home and community base for families of children with disabilities. These families are in deep need of beautiful public spaces where every member feels welcome and accepted.

Description

Extreme Kids and Crew creates programming for kids with special needs and their families and friends. We have two locations. CAP House is located in the Crispus Attucks Playground in Brooklyn and is a play space with sensory equipment for children ages 4 and under as well as home to a home school co-op for kids with special needs. AMP Space is located at PS 15 in Red Hook Brooklyn and is home to our offices, plus a nice sensory gym. AMP is the location of open play Saturdays and Sundays plus a wide range of classes and programming in art, music, movement and play.
