Partnering with Families with Special Needs Children through Joes Kids

April 13, 2021

I am a part of the local Bremen Kiwanis club. This morning I heard a presentation from a representative at Joes Kids. I would like to make sure that folks know what they are doing, that they are operating at a deficit, and they depend of our community support.

Here is a summary from their website of what they do:

Appropriate therapy from a young age can have a profound impact on a child’s development and ability to function independently later in life. At Joe’s Kids we provide care to children with a wide variety of diagnoses including: autism, sensory processing disorder, hypotonia, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome and many other genetic and developmental disorders.

We consider ourselves blessed to be able to work with these special kids and to celebrate with them as they achieve new milestones, but we cannot do this alone. Despite the ability to bill Medicaid and commercial insurances for our services, we operate at a deficit and need ongoing community support to continue our care.

And, here is a video that gives you a window into the lives of a family that has been greatly helped:

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
