Mission Statement

Through a working partnership between families and the community, Infant Toddler Services fosters and coordinates the delivery of timely, comprehensive, quality services for children aged birth to thirty-six months who have developmental delays or disabilities.

Description

Friends of Infant Toddler Services (FITS) is a separate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that develops, maintains and funds additional services and programs for children served by ITSJC. We are funded through private donations, fundraising events, such as the Stepping Stones Gala, Helping Toddlers Make The Turn Golf Tournament, Hospital Hill Run and other activities and through various grants. FITS is managed through a volunteer Board of Directors. The goal of FITS is to provide additional services and programs for the ITSJC children, to enhance the services that are provided by ITSJC, and to enable FITS to provide additional services and assistance to ITSJC children in times of extreme need or emergency.

Some of the programs that FITS provides to the ITSJC children and their families are:

Community Based Playgroups- These playgroups are held at various play gyms located throughout Johnson County during the spring, fall and winter months. The playgroups are a great way for parents to come and play with their children at an indoor gym where they can meet other parents who have children with similar needs.

Playful Potentials Program- This program provides resources not available for purchase for the general public (weighted vests, Hip Helpers, etc.)

Special Assistance Program- This fund helps provides financial assistance to families for assistive technology needs (such as wheelchairs, communication devices, hearing aids, orthotics, etc.) for which no other funds are available.

Funeral Assistance Program- Some of the children receiving services from ITSJC may have life-threatening illnesses or conditions. In the tragic event, that a child passes, this program will help fund up to $500 for funeral expenses for that child.
