Central Coast Children’s Foundation
Since the doors of Able Kid’s Rehab opened they have been supported by The Central Coast Children’s Foundation in Monterey, California. The Foundations President Harvey Pressman and his staff have tirelessly supported and reached out for additional support since April 2013. The CCCF has provided the clinic with a solar panel, Amazon Kindles, and tons of educational learning tools. CCCF also initiated a matching grant proposal for the feeding program “Lunch Money.”
The Greygates Foundation was created in 2001 by J. Ronald Gibbs to provide grants to organizations that serve the needs of children, the elderly, the disabled, or the disadvantaged, and to organizations that promote animal welfare or wildlife preservation.
Relationship with Georgian College
The Georgian College Communicative Disorders Assistant class of 2014-2015, 2015-2016 has taken it upon themselves to raise funds for Able Kids Rehab in a fundraiser called ‘Voiceless for Victor’. This fundraiser involves students filling pledge forms and demonstrating silence for 24 consecutive hours, representing the challenges of those children speech and/or hearing challenges.
This year’s class will also be adding a crowd-funding element to its fundraising initiatives.
All funds raised will go the daily feeding program ‘Lunch Money’ to provide the children with breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.

There are also individuals that support the clinic, mainly through the feeding program.
We are hoping the website will help us to branch out in other directions give donors options on where they would like their donation to go i.e. Food, medical bills, medication for a child who’s parent cannot afford it, help with the construction of specialized furniture i.e. standing frames, or a specially designed chair for a child to take home so they aren’t laying on the floor constantly.
