Where does a child battling a life-threatening illness go to find peace and solitude? Where does a child battling a life-threatening illness go to get away from the needles and medicines? Special Spaces is a nonprofit 501 C (3) organization that creates dream bedrooms for children with life-threatening illnesses. Special Spaces evolved on the belief that children facing this journey need a special space for them to heal, recover and find peace. From princess rooms to outer space rooms, from vintage travel rooms to baseball rooms, we interview the child and family to get an in-depth understanding of the child’s wishes and dreams in order to create a unique and medically functional room. A little girl may dream of a princess room while the parents’ are in critical need of storage space for medical supplies. We balance both those needs and wishes to create a safe and comforting space. A Special Spaces room makeover is a very ‘special space’ that only the child can dream or imagine that our team of contractors, electricians and volunteers come together to create in just one day.
