Beneficiaries

Thanks to your gifts through the Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy event, along with support from thousands of individuals, companies and organizations, the B.E. Smith Family Center opened in April 2019. This new facility has greatly expanded educational and therapeutic offerings for children in a state-of-the-art facility on the AdventHealth Shawnee Mission campus located at I-35 and 75th St. 

Designed to provide a modern learning environment for children of all ability levels, the Center fosters collaboration and connection between children, families and staff, and promotes understanding and inclusion of children with special needs.

The B.E. Smith Family Center features include indoor and outdoor inclusive playgrounds, two aquatic therapy pools, and spacious classrooms and therapy rooms filled with natural light. Multiple classrooms in the Britain Development wing feature the Variety KC Compass system, which allows children with mobility difficulties the opportunity to interact with peers while standing and walking with support from a harness.
