Review for Supporters of Children with Additional Needs Inc, Lebanon, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Yes, I am a board member for S.C.A.N. but would like you to know how personally involved I am with children and adults with special & additional needs. Special needs have always touched my heart and currently at our church we offer a childs & adult special needs class, I am involved with Camp Barnabas which is a camp for kids & young adults with special needs, and currently just finished up a Miracle League team for special needs adults. We own an Event Center in Stoutland, MO where we plan on hosting many special needs events. I have a brother who is also a special need adult. After all this being said, I hope by reading my review about S.C.A.N. you see the blessings it has gave this community!!

TheS.C.A.N. organization offers up support, learning, and activities for children with additional needs in the Lebanon Community and others in surrounding communities. Personally being a board member for less than a year, I have seen this group grow so much. It takes money to run any type of group and when your non-profit it makes it difficult to grow on limited funds. Over the last year the S.C.A.N. organization has evolved from a tiny office to a learning and activity center. The center has been a blessing to children with additional needs. They offer a speech therapist, a computer learning center, reading programs, social interaction, life skills, and so much more. Besides all they offer at the Learning & Activity Center they offer many outside events like movies, bowling, ziplining, canoeing, gymnastics, and so much more. I can't say enough about this organization and how it can benefit the families with children with additional needs. If you have a child with additional needs and are looking for an opportunity to like S.C.A.N. you need to come check it all out!! S.C.A.N. does a lot of fundraising not only to keep their faciltiy running but help other non profit organizations like Down Syndrome, Autism, and more!! How awesome is that? A non profit helping another non profit!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Personally I wouldn't make changes...I think this organization is growing and changes will be made. These will be only great changes!! I pray this community will provide the support and funding to keep it growing and growing!!
