PACT: Helping Children With Special Needs

The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical in terms of development.  It is during this time that 90 percent of a child’s brain growth occurs, accompanied by the cognitive development that often determines the course of the child’s future.

Yet, for many children, those critical years are spent just trying to survive. 

    PACT offers these young children and their families hope when they have nowhere else to turn.  Ensuring that all children get the proper start in life is the goal that has been driving PACT since 1981.

Without your support, the families we serve would have nowhere else to turn for specialized child care and family support.
