About The Warren Center
As a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, The Warren Center is committed to developing a child's potential and building a stronger family. Each year, The Warren Center enables 1,400 children to improve motor, speech, feeding, cognition, social skills, and sensory difficulties. The Warren Center believes that every child deserves wings. Children born with disabilities or developmental differences need special care to spread their wings and reach their potential. Success is found when a child receives early treatment and a family is able to provide a loving and supportive environment for their child to grow, be accepted, and become a valued member of the community. The Warren Center specializes in early childhood intervention services for infants, toddlers, young children and their families. Currently, The Warren Center offers two programs focused on the special needs of children. The Warren Center ECI serves children birth to three years of age and provides in-home therapy services for children with developmental delays and disabilities. Family Outreach and Support offers professionally-led parent support groups, training sessions for parents, and most importantly, a listening ear to help families filter information, find and access resources, and become advocates for their child(ren) with special needs.
