Our first Sunshine Kids session for children ages 4, 5 and 6 was a tremendous success for both the children and their families. The children were able to get fingerprinted and have their photos taken as part of the Safe Child Program provided by the Orange County Sheriff's Office, New York. They learned about fire safety from the Campbell Hall Fire Department and were very excited to sit on a fire truck. They learned all about astronomy from Jupiter Judy’s interactive program, and were provided with a laugh-filled magic show by Macaroni the Clown. They were able to hold and pet animals that were brought to them by Smooches and Smiles, Inc. The weather was sunny and warm and they loved the water play activities that were provided for them. The parents enjoyed the arts and crafts projects that the children brought home each day, as much as the children enjoyed making them. We look forward to the next two sessions; August 13th-August 17th for ages 7, 8 and 9; and August 20th-24th for ages 10, 11, and 12 year olds. There are still openings in each session. Please contact Jamie Conklin at 294-7300, ext. 255 for more information. ...

“I am grateful for the care and expertise that [the staff at Inspire] have put forth while addressing my mom’s varied needs.  I commend their ability to be accommodating and flexible while dealing with my elderly mom, who requires some special efforts to help her understand her treatment and what is necessary to achieve a desired outcome.  [The staff at Inspire] have been hardworking and knowledgeable as we proceed through mom’s aging and the journey of her care.  I appreciate what Inspire provides and the professionalism of [its staff].”   David O., 2014

“I remember [Inspire] and all the work Inspire Kids put into helping my son and I am forever grateful to you for that.  I remember choosing [Inspire] because of the “homey” feel it had…What [Inspire] does matters so much to those parents who feel helpless when they hear that their child has a disability.  We are just one family but there are countless families that [Inspire] has helped over the years and continues to help and, for that, I want to say thank you for all you do, from the bottom of my heart.” -Rita C., 2014

“My grandson attends the Golden Apple Preschool and also has services of PT, OT, and speech after school.  Since his start in September….I have had the pleasure to become well acquainted with [the Inspire] staff.  Their kindness and professionalism has made this experience enjoyable for my grandson as well as myself.  The dedication of the therapists, teachers, secretaries and the [teacher’s] aides is evident in all they do.  We are lucky to have Inspire and all its associates to service the people of this area.” -Anonymous, 2014

“I have only worked at Inspire for a couple years, but in my time working there I can tell you a few things: Inspire cares for its students and patients.  It amazes me every day as I see these children develop. The [teacher’s] aides have such a heart…they work hard to make sure that the students get all that they deserve.  Inspire is not only a place that has skills and programs to help it’s clients, but it also has a lot of heart.” -Anonymous, 2015
