15%

kids in seattle public schools have a disability

Our goal is to reach out to as many of these kids as possible and remind them that they are valued, loved, and welcomed. ​

Kids known by name

Although we hope every kid has a chance to come to one of our fun events, we are aware that our greatest impact is made within relationships, not events. With every passing day, we strive to get to know the specific name of more and more kids in our area.
