On April 3, from 11:00am – 2:00pm The Federation is hosting Jewish Nashville Community Day, with booths and activities for everyone in the Jewish community of Nashville and Middle Tennessee. The Federation’s Disability Inclusion Committee is hosting one of these booths. When you visit the booth, you will learn about grant opportunities for individuals and organizations through the Lori Ann Fishel Special Needs Fund, see hands-on technological devices created by Vanderbilt University Tikkun Olam Maker (TOM) students and your kids can make their own calming bottles, complete with a few different kinds of glitter!
The mission of Siskin Children’s Institute is to improve the quality of life for children with special needs and their families. Siskin is a nonprofit organization that provides pediatric services throughout the region which includes a medical clinic for diagnosis and therapy and two early learning centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee and a Nashville, Tennessee clinic that also provides diagnosis, therapy, and family resources to the greater Nashville area. Our goal is to ensure children get the developmental services they need by enhancing access to care across the region and beyond.
The Federation’s Disability Inclusion Committee works with partner organizations in and outside of the Jewish community with the goal to provide services and access to services for every member of our community. Siskin Children’s Institute is one of these partners. To learn more about its services: www.siskin.org
