Help us Fill the Trucks! Donate your unwanted items to support Twenty-One Senses in our FUNDrive, giving you more time for summer fun and peace of mind that you are helping children in your community.
A Forest Glen mom started Twenty-One Senses. She saw a need for support focused on families who have children with sensory disabilities. Did you know that one in six children have sensory sensitivity and is associated with 20+ diagnoses, including Autism, ADHD, and PTSD? In the past year, we have been able to reach over 18,000 families with our free online resources!
