Special Kids Breaks Ground on New Facility

  Email   Print

Special Kids broke ground Friday on its new rehabilitation services building near downtown Murfreesboro. The ceremony was held at their new location at 2202 East Main Street. Families and children who have benefited from its services along with the staff, board of directors, and supporters of Special Kids were there. The new facility is funded through a land donation of $100,000 from longtime supporters Cam and Celeste Bivens, and a nearly $1.5 million grant from the Christy-Houston Foundation. The grant funds will go toward building a 6,800-square-foot facility that will house the organization’s rehabilitation services, including speech, occupational and physical therapy. The expansion will allow Special Kids to refit its current 6,000-square-foot facility to expand its nursing services and orthopedic physical therapy program, as well as double its current caseload of 230 children with special needs.
