Our Mission

We are seeking donations of materials for our Comfort and Care program.  Volunteers use the material to make blankets for our special needs friends who have been hospitalized and need a little extra comfort while undergoing medical treatment

SLSF is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit working to ensure that all individuals with special needs can continue to receive necessary therapies and support across the home, community and work environments regardless of age, race, religion, gender, disability or sexual orientation

We partner with various organizations: Penn State Extension Office of Cumberland County, Awareness Speedway,  and Carlisle Arts Learning Center for various classes and workshops. Please check back for the most up to date information.
