Lili Claire Foundation for Williams Syndrome 
 
 
"The Lili Claire Foundation was established to enhance the lives of children living with Williams Syndrome, Down Syndrome, Autism and other neurogenetic disorders, while providing hope and resources for the families who love them. The foundation was created in 1998 to honor the memory of Lili Claire Resnick, who was born with the neurogenetic birth defect known as Williams Syndrome. Lili died when she was five and a half months old after undergoing an eighteen-hour open-heart surgery to correct a severe heart condition associated with the disorder."  Santa Monica

Surfers Healing 
 
 
"Israel and Danielle Paskowitz are the founders of Surfers Healing. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload--simple sensations could become overwhelming, even painful. The one thing that seemed to calm him was being in the ocean; even as a baby Isaiah loved to swim and splash in the shallows. Israel and Danielle’s two other children are Israelah 16 and Elijah 9. Isaiah is now 13. In an inspired moment, Israel, a former champion longboard surfer, borrowed a large board built for tandem surfing. Putting Isaiah on the front of the board, Israel sat behind him, paddling and steering from the back. They spent the day catching waves and surfing together. The impact it had on both Isaiah and Israel was profound. 'There was something about the ocean that calmed him', recounts Israel. 'Being in the water seemed to soothe his overloaded senses.' More importantly, surfing together had created a new closeness between Israel and Isaiah.... Today, the day camps, which are free to participants, are attended by over 200 people and receive media coverage from the likes of People magazine and HBO television. Says Danielle, 'This all started out as a means to share something really meaningful to us with other families of autistic children. It’s amazing to see how much joy this has brought not just to the kids, but to the families as well.' Currently, day camps are being held in Southern California, New York and Hawaii. The hope of the foundation is to continue to expand so that one day, surf camps could be offered to autistic children all over the world." Need surf & beach volunteers.  San Juan Capistrano
TASK - Team of Advocates for Special Kids 
 
 
"Team of Advocates for Special Kids (TASK) is a nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to enable individuals with disabilities to reach their maximum potential by providing them, their families and the professionals who serve them with training, support, information, resources and referrals, and by providing community awareness programs. Initially, the primary focus was on children three to 21 years of age, but services evolved to include all ages, especially in the TASK Technology Center. TASK serves families of children aged birth to 22 years of age under IDEA and other systems mandated to provide services to individuals with disabilities. As a federally-funded Parent Training and Information Center, TASK is part of a national network of centers providing similar services. TASK provides advocacy information, workshops and information in English, Spanish and Vietnamese."  Anaheim

Waterbabies Swim School 
 
 
"Waterbabies Swim School began over twenty years ago in a backyard pool in Capistrano Beach. The intimate backyard environment was comfortable for both parents and their children and worked beautifully. In keeping with that tradition, Waterbabies has now built its new home pool in the beautiful backyard of an original Ole Hanson cottage in downtown San Clemente. We offer small, semi- private classes, starting our babies at 5 months of age and continuing to completion with advanced stroke refinement. Our new pool is saltwater, with an Ozone system to instantly kill bacteria. Our pool is heated year-round to a wonderful 90°. We have expanded our program to include lessons at the beautiful Rancho San Clemente Tennis & Fitness Club. Our classes and philosophy remain the same at all our locations: small, semi-private classes with individual attention in a positive learning environment filled with lots of praise and love. We also include children with disabilities and will extend a special program for autistic children in our new pool."  San Clemente
