Special Friends Foundation is pleased to announce our very first time participating with the SAN DIEGO GIVES even alongside other non-prifit organizations in the area. We hope that we can reach our goal of $10.000 at this event. A generous benefactor has offered to match the first donor of $1,000.00 in today's event.
In May, 1997, Special Friends Foundation, by a miraculous chain of events, was able to purchase its first home through the incredible assistance and support of the City of Poway Redevelopment Agency, as well as the mayor and city council, the purchase of the second home was made possible in June 2003. Both homes required extensive work before occupancy, but through the volunteer efforts of family, friends and various organizations, both homes are now fully operational. The Vaughan home (3700 sq ft license #374600641) is on a 1.25 acre lot directly adjacent to 55 acres of dedicated open space. It has a ranch style layout boasting 8 bedrooms, 5 baths and an expansive living area. The Sagewood home (3500 sq ft. license # 374601939) is on a half acre lot in the beautiful Green Valley area of North Poway.
Each resident has an Individual Progam Plan (IPP) that is developed and updated annually with the involvement of the house parents, the family home administrator and appropriate case worker. Our program is designed to assist with both the social and skill development of our residents. In addition, we facilitate their employment opportunities, social activities and community involvement.
We focus on the development of each individual's strengths in a nurturing setting. And we raise public awareness, understanding and acceptance of those with special needs through integrated community activities.
Providing Caring Hearts and Homes is the essence of what SFF is about. Our goal is to provide a secure, safe, nurturing home-like atmosphere for those who are developmentally delayed.
We provide a total environment of care and support with therapeutic and educational services. Thos will allow each individual to build a sense of self-worth and independence in order to become an important, contributing part of the community.
Our vision is to provide high quality residential care and supportive services in an enriched environment for persons who are developmentally challenged.
