The goal of this 501(c)(3) organization is to help children and youth with Spina Bifida or acquired spinal cord injuries grow up to be confident, resilient, independent, and contributing members of society who have intimate ongoing relationships with peers and the Triune God of Scripture. To accomplish this, we will have bimonthly meetings consisting of four components:

Happy Kids Huddle
  1. a speaker, presentation, activity, or field trip to expose participants to a wide variety of interests, conversational topics, skills, potential hobbies, play and leisure activities, vocations, community resources, and networking opportunities
  2. exploration of and provision of service to others

  4. a nondenominational study of the Bible to learn about the God who created the universe
