Non Profit Services: Touching Lives Of Children With Special Needs

Grants for Special Needs Children

Children with special needs are those who have physical defects, health conditions, learning difficulties, and suffer abuses. They are also those who have behavioral, mental, and emotional impairments. They often need costly equipment and support that will give them a convenient life. Thus, there are non profit services that address these concerns.

Reducing the Hardship through Non Profit Services

Non profit foundations (nonprofits) aim to aid children with special needs. How do they offer help:

  1. They identify the concerns of these children.
  2. They create projects to lessen children’s hardship. These could be special learning, materials or tools, and other programs.
  3. They look for the right funding sources.
  4. They write and submit proposals.
  5. They carry out noble works to improve the children’s lives.

Although it sounds a tough job, they keep on serving young people. But with limited resources, how can they make the lives of these children easy?

Nonprofits seek funds for their projects. These free-monies help them fulfill their costly mission. Through grants, they can finance and fight for the rights of these children to have a comfortable  life. These grants give free education, materials, healthcare aid, special learning, and other programs. Through these efforts, they touch the lives and enrich the future of young people.

Getting the Fund

If you are a nonprofit, the Internet can be a great source of funders. Private groups and federal agencies can support your charitable works. Seek for their help and comply with their guidelines. Once you have figure out the needs, you can now write a proposal.

You may also join local or national and groups doing charities for children’s welfare. This is also a good step to look for funds.

In applying for grant, you have to explain well and convince funders that your program is crucial for these children.  Medical records and other details are very important for these serve as proofs. Submit the grant on or before the deadline. Importantly, you have to converse with funders to answer your queries and concerns.

Writing and applying for grants could be hard, but it pays when you win one. If you don’t know how to begin, you are lucky to have grant writing services around. You may search the Internet to find one.

    I have an 8 year old boy who is severely autistic. James was diagnosed at 18 months and was accepted at PCDI. He still has no verbal or receptive language. He engages in self injurious behaviors all day long and has to be restrained most of those times. As his parents, we are trying to keep him in the home for as long as possible being that we live in the fear of someone abusing him and the fact that James has no language to tell us. James has some home therapy after school from 3:30 till 8pm Monday-Friday. However, during breaks and weekends he is left with only us to keep him on task. It has been recorded that James may have 10,000 trials to obtain a new simple skill. While he has time off of school, he regresses so quickly and therefore looses skills that he once had. I am not able to work because of the intense involvement James requires. For example: I must attend school visits weekly for observation and I have home visits once a week to receive more training from his therapist, teacher, and director. My husband has been out of work since 12/28/2011 due to a 2 1/2 story fall he took while Ironworking. He only receives workers comp and is totally disabled. This past February 28th he underwent a decompression laminectomy and spinal fusion. Although some neurological ailments have been corrected, he is still unable to work. We need grants or some other assistance so we may hire some additional therapists for James. We would also like to use some of that award to remodel a room in our house to better serve as a therapy room and perhaps some sensory items as well. I beg of your organization to help us in any way you can.

    Respectfully yours,
    Jaime Charles

    I am 18 and in my senior year, for as long as I can recall I have had migraines and vomiting. Two years ago I started having neck pain and was diagnosed with a chiari malformation. Two weeks ago while doing community service hours I became light headed, dizzy, neck pain and lost all my hearing in my right ear proceeding with the worst pain in my head I’ve ever had. When the ear doctors performed my hearing test I lost both inner and outer hearing which is due to something in the cranial region. They have run every test in the world and it appears it can only be the Chiari Malformation. I have ADD and take medication for this so learning has always been hard work but, I keep a 3.0. I was at a 3.6 however, with the hearing loss and specialist after specialist I’ve missed a lot of school. My mom became disabled this year and on social security and my dad works. I worry about them because dad retires in December and I know they will not be able to afford to send me to college and this is all I want. My education is so very important to me and I would like to attend in the fall as I will be having brain decompression surgery in June. The odds are not in my favor to regain my hearing as even though they could do the surgery now, I’ve decided to wait because I want to graduate with all my high school friends and its only 4 weeks away. So ill just endure the pain and try harder. I’m sure I’m not the only one who needs a grant, and I’m sure many others are much more deserving but, the idea of having a grant to attend college would allow me to become independent. That alone is very important to me! Thank you for taking the time to read this, it means so much.
