  Touching All The Senses

July 2015   
Hello from the President,

What an amazing summer!  For some, it is coming to an end and the kids are going back to school and for others there are just a few weeks left before the kids start heading to class.  We have seen a steady flow of children coming through the doors this summer with individuals coming in just about everyday we are open.  This is great news for us as we are really starting to see that the need for Special Haven is very real.  We are also contacted weekly from groups and individuals all over the US and even some from other countries asking us how can they start a "special haven" in their area.  Although we would love to be able to open multi-sensory rooms throughout the country, we realize that we are not in position to do that right now.  Right now we are working to make Special Haven in Antioch the best it can be and we can not do this without are wonderful supporters.  Thank you all so much for believing in us!  


Our next fundraiser is coming up, Special Haven's 4th Annual Golf Tournament is on Saturday, September 12th  from 11:30am to 8pm. The event is at Roddy Ranch Golf Club in Antioch this year.  Tickets are only $100 per golfer (which includes dinner) and $35 per person for dinner only.  Visit our events page for more information and to purchase tickets  Click Here

On Saturday, May 9th, 2015 I had a Special Needs baseball game to coach in the morning and things went great.  After the game, I had to rush home and get my car loaded and make my way over to E.J. Phair Brewery and just about 10 min into the drive I got a call stating that Highway 4 was backed up for some reason.  There is always something, some sort of obstacle, when putting on an event and it looks like today wouldn't be any different.  I was still able to get to E.J. Phair in good time and with the help of several Learn more

What we are offering is a night where parents or caregivers of special needs individuals can enjoy a little respite time.  Caring for a special needs  child can be very difficult and stressful at times.  Finding people to watch your children isn't always the easiest thing as not all childcare facilities have the knowledge and skills to care for special needs children.  The great thing is that the instructors at Elite Dance are very familiar working with the special Learn more
