Special Needs Kids, Inc

Special Needs Kids, Inc. is a non-profit adaptive equipment lending library created specifically to meet the needs of the pediatric population.

Our mission is to decrease the healthcare costs associated with raising a child with special needs by providing loaned adaptive equipment, improving accessibility to adaptive equipment for children with special needs, and promoting an overall sense of good stewardship of healthcare resources by encouraging the donation and use of gently used adaptive equipment.

ABOUT OUR VOLUNTEERS

Special Needs Kids, Inc. is operated completely by volunteers, from the creation and maintenance of our website, to the cleaning, inventorying, and distribution of our equipment. If you would like to join our team of amazing volunteers, please email us at: Volunteer@SpecialNeedsLending.org

No amount of time is too little for the children and families we serve!

WHAT WE DO

Special Needs Kids, Inc. accepts donations of gently used, non-specialized adaptive equipment. Our volunteers then clean, inspect, and make minor repairs to the equipment in order to make it available to other children and their families.

Donated equipment is then inventoried and added to the available equipment list on our website. Volunteers coordinate the distribution of equipment with families from our Suwanee, Georgia facility.
