Nathaniel’s Hope was founded in 2002 to meet the needs of kids with special needs (VIP Kids) and their families. VIP Kids are those with any physical, cognitive, medical or hidden disability, chronic or life-threatening illness, or those who are medically fragile. Through their personal experience with their Son Nathaniel, so-founders Tim and Marie Kuck saw first-hand how demanding it can be to raise a child with special needs. Though a tremendous blessing, the life of raising a VIP Kid can be all-consuming with very little support available, even from friends and family, forcing many VIP families to travel the journey overwhelmed and alone.
BRINGING HOPE AND RESOURCES OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO VIP KIDS AND THEIR FAMILIES
Buddy Break was created to provide respite care for families who had little or no support system to give them a break when they need it the most. Buddy Break is a program that gives VIP parents that break, while allowing people to get involved by being a Buddy friend to a child and their family.
