Extra Special People
Want to donate to this charity?

Extra Special People creates opportunities for children with disabilities and their families to engage, connect, and thrive. Each year, ESP serves 300 children of all abilities through summer camp and afterschool programs. ESP serves participants ages 4 and up, at all levels of ability. No child is ever turned away from ESP because of their disability. Each year more of these 2,000 individuals have the chance to thrive at ESP. In June 2016, ESP opened the doors to a 14,000-square foot activity building. Through this new space, ESP has welcomed more individuals into their programs and expanded family programming through on-site family counseling, parent workshops, and monthly spaghetti dinners. At ESP, the focus is on ability, not disability. ESP is not a just service for participants and their families; it’s a community, a way of life.
