Take Advantage of All We Have to Offer
We would like to start the year by making sure that everyone is aware of the great services and resources that CSNN has to offer! Don’t forget, all CSNN services and resources are provided at no cost to our families. In the near future, we will be sending detailed descriptions of each resource.
Saturday Afternoon Respite – CSNN offers four hours of free childcare to children with special healthcare needs and their siblings. We currently offer these center-based respites once a month in Killeen, Temple and Waco.
Diaper Closet – Children with special needs are eligible to receive two packs of diapers twice a month. Please call the CSNN office before you stop by to confirm that we have the size you need available.
In-Home Respite Assistance – If you have a trusted childcare provider to watch your children in your home, you may be eligible for reimbursement of those costs.
Resource Assistance – CSNN has funds available to help you cover medical costs not covered by insurance. These costs include copays, medications, etc. Contact the CSNN for a better idea of what costs may be eligible for reimbursement.
CSNN Library – We currently have many great books for caregivers of children with special needs. Feel free to stop by and browse through our selection. We also have a computer available to use to obtain further information or resources.
Camp Scholarships – Summer will be here before we know it and Central Texas has many great camps for children with special needs or chronic illness. CSNN has a list of camps and may be able to provide a camp scholarship for your child.
Recreational and Social Experiences – CSNN offers many fun recreational and social experiences throughout the year for families of children with special needs or chronic illness. Be sure to be added to our email list, like us on Facebook, and check our website (www.special-children.org) to get information on all of our exciting activities.
All resources and services require certain paperwork and some must be reviewed by our Allocations committee. Please feel free to call us at 254-933-7597 if you have any questions and for step by step instructions on how to take advantage of what we have to offer!
