Variety of Georgia’s mission is to enrich, improve, and fulfill the lives of children living with disabilities and disadvantages. Our hope is that all children of ability or circumstance are able to actively participate in their community and experience all the joys that come with being a child. Every child deserves the opportunity to live, laugh, and learn. Our focus is to provide health, wellness, and educational programs to underserved children who are disadvantaged or have special needs.
The Variety Caring for Kids program, provides access to uncovered medical services and devices. This program is designed to fit the specific needs of a child. The main goal for many parents is to allow their child the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Families turn to this program as a last resort to help their child. At Variety, we know how hard it is for parents to find a program that will help with funding that is not covered by insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. This program not only offers support for these children, but also enhances our community by bettering the lives of the people around us. Through the Caring for Kids program Variety fills in the gaps in their lives and provides resources to fit each child’s unique medical needs.
