Review for Exceptional Needs Network, Livermore, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It's not every day that you find a non profit organization with such a strong following that parents literally line up in the wee hours of the morning to ensure their child has a space at camp. ENN has become 'the' go-to camp for individuals with special needs in the East Bay area of San Francisco. Their free camping experience, which provides dedicated parents with needed weekend respite, has developed into a club of campers, alumni, staff, volunteers and parents who could not imagine life without this organization. Low overhead, direct donor to program funding and the chance to experience summer camp as it should be (regardless of your disability or situation) is what sets them apart. They deserve your strong support.

Review for The Taylor Family Foundation, Livermore, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Taylor Family Foundation provides a service that many forget -- helping sick and disabled children enjoy time away from their illness and daily stress to enjoy a day, night and week at summer camp. My son Robby, who has autism, has been fortunate to "camp" there for the last ten years. It has been one of the most enjoyable experiences of his life. Not only does TFF provide this true camping experience for children with disabilities - they do so for free. That's right, each camper attends at absolutely no cost. The cabins, meals, activities are all provided at no cost due to the generous benefactors of the organization. Whether a child has autism, AIDS, a heart or skin condition, or is bi-polar or physically disabled, Taylor Family Foundation is there - every single summer - to help them experience summer camp. Elaine Taylor, the founder, has poured her heart and soul into this camp -- and it is is literally beautiful. Cabins, swimming pools, pastures, ropes courses, arts and crafts facilities, and a full service infirmary ensure all have a good time. This is truly a non profit organization that is the 'best of the best!'
