Henry's Club plants the seed of sharing!
Henry's Club Foundationis a family run charitable foundation.
Our goal is to enrich the lives of people with exceptionalities including Autism, Epilepsy, Fragile X, Taurette Syndrome, Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, and more.
Please consider supporting us on our journey.
Our son, Henry is a young man who struggles with numerous significant special needs including Autism, Epilepsy, and Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.
Since Henry was diagnosed with autism at an early age, we have struggled to find ways to enrich his life and help him to experience the joys and adventures that would be available to typically developing children. Things like scouts, sports, friendships, etc. that come naturally to typically developing children would be unavailable to him if it weren’t for our constant efforts. Many of these things come with additional financial burdens as well.
We have been fortunate in that we have usually been able to find the financial means to support him in this way, although it has not been without hard work and sacrifice.
Unfortunately, not every family can muster the funds that it takes to support a healthy and active life for their children with special needs. We have always thought about these other families and wondered what they must do to get by. Surely the child with special needs must suffer in those cases where the family cannot afford such necessities of life.
We started Henry's Club with the following goal in mind: Enrich the lives of people with exceptionalities. To that end, we hope to raise the necessary funds to send people to camp, sponsor individuals for a service animal, support relevant research, and support like-minded organizations.
