Our Mission

The Karen and Gary Dake Foundation for Children: An Organization For Children With Disabilities

The Karen and Gary Dake Foundation for Children was founded to provide children with disabilities the tools they need to become as independent as possible.

Our Goal

Our goal is simple: to provide children with disabilities access to equipment and services that will enable them to reach their fullest potential for participation within their families, communities and with their peers. We believe that by providing children with these fundamentals opportunities when they are young, they will have the best chance to reach maximum health, mobility and independence in adulthood; as contributing members of their communities.
