Services

Designed to deliver multiple adaptive modes of care, The Brave Warrior Project embraces all children and their families as they navigate their special journey.  We strive to fill gaps in the system and not duplicate services. We believe in collaborating with other community organizations and working together to build a stronger community for our children with high needs or illness. We are the only organization of our kind in the Pacific Northwest.

Buddy art

What exactly is Buddy Art and what are the benefits?  

Buddy Art is a program which provides Art Activities for kids with special needs and/or physical disabilities while also pairing them up with a neurotypical developing peer. Our vision for this program is to give our children with special needs something to do outside of school and also provide a way for all of our children to socialize with one another! Art has been proven to provide a therapeutic affect on both our emotional and physical well being.  

Here are 5 reasons how Buddy Art can impact a child.

1.  It allows a child to express themselves without having to be verbal.

2.  It facilitates connections with peers.

3.  It encourages turn taking.

4.  Buddy Art can help children grow confidence.

5. Buddy Art can also help improve motor skills and control, hand-eye coordination and muscle development can be achieved through the different modalities of art.

These are just 5 reasons Buddy Art can help. There are so many more reasons! The Brave Warrior Project will be announcing dates throughout the summer. If you would like to donate please just go to the Give Now button in the top right corner. If you would like to volunteer to be a buddy please email us.

Cancer support groups are designed to help people cope with all aspects of cancer diagnosis by providing a safe environment to share experiences and learn from others who are facing similar obstacles. Below are some of the reasons why joining a cancer support group could have powerful benefits on the success of treatment and recovery.

  • Many studies have shown how a support group can reduce anxiety and stress, emotional distress, fatigue and pain, as well as improve mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control

  • Joining a cancer survivorship program can help to equip you with the resources and support to navigate your new normal post-treatment

  • Support groups are also offered to caregivers, family members and friends who may need encouragement while learning to cope with the diagnosis of a loved one.

Sensory Day at the Station is for first Responders, parents, caregivers, and individuals with developmental and/or cognitive impairments. Our objective is to desensitize and prepare special needs individuals to appropriately interact with First Responders in a fun and stress free environment. It also gives First Responders an opportunity to gain experience interacting with individuals affected by ASD and other disorders in a real-time environment.  


parent education
