Mission

D4SK is dedicated to improving the lives of men and their families who care for children with special needs. We desire to provide an atmosphere where men can share and learn from others. To accomplish this we host monthly meetings, offer workshops that provide knowledge and practical skills for cultivating healthy communication within the marriage and family, and provide information on resources within the valley of the sun.
IN 2012 we started conducting emergency/disaster preparedness workshops, that teach individuals and families that live with functional needs on how to develop a plan that meets their needs. We also collaborate with local first responders in the functional needs communities preparedness process.
