Mission Statement

OUR MISSION Provide on-site therapeutic services and programs for individuals with special needs and their families. Provide financial support for families with developmental disabilities to access a variety of services & interventions. Offer monthly Moms' and Dads' Night Out and Moms' Coffee Break events to all special needs parents, regardless of age or disability. Enable networking opportunities through e-mail to foster connections among special needs families. Provide a comprehensive website to quickly and easily bring much-needed resources to families. Increase awareness and understanding within the general population through advocacy and community partnerships. Continuing support of our Southern California expansion.


Center4SpecialNeeds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation founded in 2011. It was established to provide resources, education, and offer a variety of supports for families who have children with special needs / developmental disabilities in Ventura County, California. Towards the end of 2016, we have updated our bylaws to include children ages 2-16 and young adults. Also, we expanded our outreach to not only cover Ventura County, but to cover Los Angeles County, Orange County, and Santa Barbara County. In addition, in the beginning of 2017, we will be providing direct services including social skills programs and social & educational opportunities for children and young adults.

Center4SpecialNeeds is a parent-founded organization comprised of a team of people who are all touched in some way with a child with special needs. Each person offers their own valuable insight, experience and abilities to the organization, thereby insuring that a well-rounded perspective is maintained on all special needs matters.

Our purpose is to build a foundation-eventually a multi-disciplinary center-that bridges the gap for those children who fall between the cracks; the children who have developmental disabilities and do not qualify for regional center services and are not covered by insurance. We will enable parents to provide their children with the necessary treatments and interventions they require and deserve to reach their full potential.
