Special Kids Special Families is a Colorado non-profit 501(c)3 organization. SKSF was founded in 1998 to provide respite and care for children and adults with disabilities. Programs offer community support services to families that are designed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities throughout their life span.
Raising a child with a disability is challenging. Finding respite care is important to families as parents need a break in their 24/7 care of their loved one. Please take a moment to read about the Vlach’s family journey and how Zach’s Place is so important to them. Read here…
During this holiday season, please consider giving the gift of respite. Donate in any amount today. We appreciate your support of our programs and the individuals we serve.
