How is the Clinic for Special Children funded?
The Clinic is funded from four major sources of revenue—annual auction revenue, collaborative relationships, clinic fees, and donations from caring people just like you.
We work hard to keep clinic fees to a minimum to ensure the families we serve can afford the consistent care they need. Private philanthropic donations allow us to conduct research, provide community education, and coordinate patient care.
Help us to continue to provide patients with timely, affordable and effective care!
Our clinic serves as a trusted medical home for families working to prevent and treat genetic illness in their children. Serving predominantly Amish and Mennonite families, the sturdy, timber-framed building was "raised" by the hands of those in the Anabaptist community outside of Strasburg, PA. Inside the clinic is filled with an array of high-tech gene sequencing that allows us to deliver state of the art care in a nurturing environment.
