Sammy's House

Serving children with special needs


The mission of Sammy’s House is to provide services for children with and without special needs.  We operate a child development center, a respite care program, summer camp and family support services to fill the gaps in services for children, especially those who are medically fragile and/or developmentally delayed.

Sammy’s House began in November of 1999 as a family home child care center serving 4 children who were medically fragile. Today, their child development center and respite care program is proud to serve over 100 children in the Austin area every year. Learn more about Sammy's House here.

Urgent Needs

  • Champions for Children Fundraiser: A Champion for Children fundraiser is an event or activity hosted by a business, organization, community group, school, or individual that benefits Sammy’s House. The event is planned and executed independently and Sammy’s House may be the full or partial beneficiary. This packet has a ton of ideas and all the guidelines you need to get started.

Ongoing Needs

  • Cleaning classrooms
  • Organizing
  • Landscaping and light construction

Note: If the same volunteers come more than three times while kids are present, a thorough background check is needed. Email for more details.
