Mission Statement


Our mission is simple but zealous. It is to create dream bedrooms for children with life-threatening illnesses. A place that only the child can dream or imagine while addressing their medical needs. Where does a child go battling a life-challenging illness to find peace and comfort? Special Spaces was founded in July 2004 on the precedent that children battling a life-challenging illness needed their own special space. It is a special space of hope and inspiration and a place to find peace and comfort. Special Spaces as of today has created over 90 dream bedrooms. It also has affiliates in California, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and is now (thanks to recent exposure on ABC’s Secret Millionaire) in Albuquerque.  It is the vision of our organization to have a Special Spaces affiliate in every state.
