The Drop Collaborative and KidsLikeUs have joined forces to create The Enchanted Garden.

In our space, everything is designed for and from the perspective of Special Needs and Senior Citizens. Functionally tailored to their cognitive and behavioral abilities. Remarkably, this approach also enhances the experience for those of all abilities. All are welcome.

The Enchanted Garden will specialize on hosting classes, workshops and events for the Special Needs and Senior Citizen population in our community.

ABOUT KIDSLIKEUS

www.KidsLikeUsCommunity.org

 “When the world is focused on the disability, we focus on the possibility.”

Our programs are tailored for the Special Needs community, but all are welcome to learn and grow here as well. This is what “Kids Like Us” is all about. We believe that all children and young adults, regardless of ability or disability should:

  • Have the same opportunity to connect with others

  • Be able to learn and socially connect with new friends, and

  • Have a sense of belonging in the community.
