The Sutherland's Help Out is designed to provide our fans with some information about our favorite organizations and charities. We love these groups and we hope you will too!!!
Pacekids Programs is a Calgary charity that provides education and therapy programs tailored for infants and children with special needs (i.e. conditions such as cerebral palsy, down syndrome, autism and motor disabilities) and their families. The programs are family-focused and address a broad spectrum of needs, from individual therapy to structured programs like preschool and kindergarten. So often, children with special needs have intellect and abilities that are hidden by their difficulties to communicate or demonstrate. The right combination of support and encouragement can draw out a child’s potential and build on their other abilities. Pacekids helps kids with special needs discover their hidden potential. www.pacekids.ca
