Celebrate Differences is committed to creating a place for families of children with disabilities to feel a part of a larger, accepting community. We realize parents are experiencing the feeling of being overwhelmed with emotions, worries and questions. We want families to know there is hope and resources available to help. Celebrate Differences offers a place where children, adults and families feel welcome and safe. A place where they are able to utilize their gifts and celebrate their uniqueness; where they can truly be themselves.
Celebrate Differences is an all-inclusive Disability Awareness Center, welcoming all children and their families regardless of age or disability. We offer services - such as informative monthly workshops, sib shops, resource library, annual summer and holiday party, Next Chapter book club, play groups, Autism and Down syndrome support group and much MORE! We connect families through our outreach projects, our social activities and social networking.

"My favorite part of this race was the overall positive and warm feeling that a small community charity event can offer. I felt the dedication and teamwork of this organization. They made everyone feel like a winner. At the end they held a fun run for families, children and those with special needs. These are the kind of events that make me feel proud to be a member of the running community. I was very grateful to be a part of this event and will sign up again next year."
