HOPE FOR NEW YORK
Center for All Abilities
Downtown

Center for All Abilities seeks to serve individuals with special needs and their families through creative, educational and spiritual enrichment in a faith-guided environment. Their vision is for people with special needs and their families to realize and live out their full potential in God through supportive services. 

OUR PARTNERSHIP
This spring, we mobilized volunteers to participate in CAA's annual Special Olympics, allowing children with special needs to experience organized sports, some for the very first time!
We love that Center for All Abilities seeks to support families to empower their loved ones who have special needs.
Some of our most creative volunteers serve with CAA-- especially with the arts and music opportunities!

We are so grateful to everyone who donated to stock the stores with toys and volunteered as part of a His Toy Store committee to make the stores happen.
