Jack’s Helping Hand is a San Luis Obispo-based organization established to provide community programs that enable families, professionals and the broader community to meet the unique unmet physical, mental, and medical needs of special children and young adults who have not attained the age of twenty-one.

“We will be opening one hour early and preparing the museum for our friends with special needs,” says Jennifer Smith, museum director. “After an hour of private play time we will head down to the Museum basement for story time and access to Katie’s Korner Adaptive Toy Lending Library sponsored by Jack’s Helping Hand. There will be an Adaptive Toy specialist on hand to help families check out a special toy so the learning can continue at home.”

“We are so excited to be able to share the Museum and the joyful learn-through-play experience it provides with our friends with special needs. Partnering with Jack’s Helping Hand is a perfect fit and we look forward to providing this experiences to families on a monthly basis,” says Smith.
