Transforming the Lives of Special Families

Every parent of a child with special needs asks three questions:

Will my child ever be able to provide for themself?

Who will take care of my child when I'm gone?

Who will take care of me?

Transforming the lives of special families and empowering them to SOAR in their local and faith communities.

SOAR provides respite, social clubs, summer day camps, Wonderfully Made Disability Conference, Employer Disability Training, and church resources. In the future, SOAR looks forward to providing employment training opportunities for adults/teens with disabilities, housing and related communities to support individuals with disabilities as they age, and much more!

Personal Greeting From Doc

SOAR (Special Opportunities, Abilities, & Relationships) Special Needs was launched in September 2011 by Doc Hunsley. Doc is a retired pediatrician who developed a passion for individuals with special needs because of his son, Mark, who had Dravet Syndrome and autism. Mark was cured of his special needs in November 2010 when he was born into Heaven at the age of 5.
