Sandhills Children’s Center is a private, non-profit organization that offers an inclusive child developmental day program for children with and without special developmental needs, ages birth through five, twelve months a year. The Children’s Center provides educational programs, therapeutic and nutritional services, and family support that help children with disabilities that may include, Down Syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy and other chronic illnesses and developmental delays.
With two campus locations in Southern Pines of Moore County and Rockingham of Richmond County, the Center currently serves over 300 children on a daily basis. Over three-quarters of the children enrolled for developmental disability services come from poverty-level homes. Because of the low economic level of most Center families, Sandhills Children’s Center has always maintained its commitment to build financial support for services through contracts with state and area operated programs and the development of local public and private resources. Absolutely no child has, or will, be denied services due to their family’s economic status.
