Since 2002, the loving and nurturing staff at Special CHEERS has provided over 800 Houston-area children with vital therapeutic services.


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide children and young adults, including those with physical, emotional and developmental challenges, multiple opportunities for advancing their personal developmental goals in a safe family environment that optimizes peer interaction and community support.

No matter what the diagnosis, the brain can be stimulated to learn and therefore, become functional and successful.
