6-02-19: Support for families & kids with developmental disabilities, www.wonderlandkids.org

Wonderland Kids. Michelle Stiller Bradley is the Director of Services and Programs for this highly important non-profit, early-intervention agency. Each month it serves more than 250 families and their children ages birth to three who have special needs, living in north King and south Snohomish counties. Their goal is to help children with developmental delays or disabilities realize their full potential. Included in this number, and continuing to grow, are the numbers of infants born with prenatal substance exposure. Consider this shocking statistic: Every 25 minutes, a baby is born in the U.S. suffering from opioid withdrawal. A new clinic “Hope Rising Clinic” has just opened in collaboration with UW, and will work with infants through age 12. Great need for financial support. A golf tournament happens in August, and a Gala in September. Also volunteers are welcome! Great opportunities for persons looking to potentially work in this field.
