Important Notice

As SPARC continues to prioritize the health and safety of our participants, staff and the special needs community, we made the difficult decision in March to temporarily cancel our in-person programs to help do our part and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Even though our programs are on a PAUSE right now, SPARC has successfully continued to service the community by offering Virtual Programming to all of our participants. For 31 years, it has been our commitment to enrich the lives of people with special needs. We hope that you can help us continue our mission especially during this difficult time. DONATE NOW

Please note our main office remains closed but we are still reachable via our main line (914) 243-0583.

We are deeply grateful for your support of SPARC. Stay safe!
