Helping Children With Special Needs
Cecily's Closet is a San Diego based non-profit created with the simple premise of spreading stories of hope, love and encouragement to children with special needs and their families. Thanks to a small army of dedicated volunteers and supportive local businesses, Cecily's Closet is able to recycle durable medical equipment, offer free belly bands for children with feeding tubes and provide sweet dream room makeovers for children in San Diego.
After the birth of our precious Cecily, our lives were changed forever. We strive to empower Moms and Dads of children with special needs (and their equally special siblings) to become advocates and angels without wings. We hope our work provides strength and support for those families who are working hard to ensure that their children with disabilites are happy, healthy and achieve their full potential.
