Why We Care


sln heart stamp SPECIAL LIFE® Awareness

Disabilities reach far beyond the physical realm of an individual and have emotional, financial, social, and spiritual impact on families, caregivers, communities, and society as a whole. 

Impact on Families

  • 90% of families that care for a family member with a disability of any age find it difficult to integrate into church and/or community events on a regular basis.
  • Divorce rates are typically higher for families that care for children or adults with disabilities due to the added demands on the family.
  • In many situations the demands on the family are such that siblings must participate with their parents in daily care.
  • Without intervention, these families risk physical and spiritual isolation, living their lives disconnected from their local church, community, and God.
