BENEFITING: Effingham County Navigator Team, Inc.
Help us meet our ongoing needs for recreational programs, equipment, group outings, and the many events that we cover for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
ECNT, Inc provides individuals with special needs a better quality of life through community awareness, support, resources, training & recreation. Participants have a wide range of disabilities. The majority of which are on the Autism Spectrum. With the depression rate of adolescents with Autism at 38%, our mission is to offer socialization through recreation and support. Participants form new and lasting friendships, strengthen family bonds and learn the importance of sportsmanship. For many children, ECNT provides them with the opportunity for their first and sometimes only trophy! We provide a safe, structured setting for participants with special needs, and their siblings, to socialize at no cost to them. They are able to participate in activities that they otherwise would not feel comfortable, and would be a serious financial burden to them. We are able to do this through fundraising, community support, and wonderful vlounteers.
