Variety, the Children's Charity

With a mission to empower children with disabilities to live life to the fullest, Variety the Children’s Charity is ensuring that our most vulnerable kids are no longer left out or left behind.

Variety’s programs and experiences are designed to empower children with disabilities, so they may gain mobility, confidence, independence, and the chance to have typical childhood experiences. Variety focuses on mobility, communication, and social inclusion for children and families in 71 counties in PA and northern WV.

Children with disabilities face a host of challenges and obstacles that are often unrecognized to those without disabilities. No child should be denied the opportunity to have typical childhood experiences simply because they have a disability.

Specifically, Variety provides eligible children with life-changing adaptive equipment that’s individually made and tailored to meet the needs of each child. Equipment is provided through three programs:

Eligible families can apply for one, two, or all three pieces of equipment. 

Download the Variety Program Handout, which discusses the above three programs and eligibility.

Download the Barriers to Families Applying handout to see some of the reasons why families do not apply.

VARIETY IS SEEKING TO IDENTIFY EVERY ELIGIBLE CHILD FOR ALL PROGRAMS.
