The $142,000 grant, from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, was obtained with the help of Congressman Chris Smith, and will be administered through the Lakewood Township.

  1. Thank you for your help, Congressman Smith! My son spends many hours a day at the Center. The staff certainly welcomes the additional space.

  2. That’s the way to go Federal money and out of town fundraising. Keep it up SCC, Many should learn from you how to Fundraise.

  3. If anyone deserve’s this money it’s The Special Children Center”. The work they do, the love and attention they provide each and every special child that enters their school is truely remarkable!
    Keep up the great work!!!!

  4. It is not a school. It is a place of love and endless devotion. Too much to write in one comment. Find someone whose life was touched by the SCC (there are so many of them in this town-both clients and volunteers) and they will be more than happy to tell you about it.

  5. The special children center is a non-profit organization that provides an afterschool program for children with special needs, the children are fed bathed and sent home to get hugs and kisses form their calm and thankful mothers who are at ease knowing their child was in a loving environment while they were are at home caring for their other children during the hectic time of supper homework……thats just a tip of the iceberg of the services they provide they are literally a home away from home shabbos, vacation, shabbos hagadol………just walk in there and you will get emotional watching the love and care every child receives despite thier challenges

    thank you thank you center
