Tender Care’s Special Needs Resources Expo was a Success!

 Providing a Helping Hand for Special Needs Children and Families.

Special Needs Resources Expo

On April 1st, Tender Care had a successful Special Needs Resources Expo at our St. Augustine Center! 

We had over 20 vendors, 6 food sponsors, $1000 worth of raffle prizes, and a multitude of attendees at the Expo. We also had a bounce house donated for the day, a fire truck, a sensory room, and face painting!

Our guest speaker, Brittany Cunningham, shared her remarkable story of being a mom of a special needs child. She spoke of her struggles becoming a mom at 20 and navigating the new challenges she faced when her daughter was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She shares more of her story in her new book Looking Beyond the Stars.

Special Needs Resources Expo

We want to thank all the vendors, sponsors, attendees, and staff who made this Expo successful. We can’t wait for next year!
