For years, therapists and educators at the Britain and Early Learning centers have provided world-class care. Now, these programs have a world-class home in the new B.E. Smith Family Center.


This year proceeds from the Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy will further the support of an exciting new space… the B.E. Smith Family Center. This state-of-the-art facility is the new home of the Britain Development and Early Learning centers at AdventhHealth Shawnee Mission.

Doug and Nan Smith, our 2016 Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy Honorary Chairs, made an extraordinary lead gift to propel this project forward. Their vision will shape the lives of thousands of children, giving hope to those with special needs and superb early education for children.

Visit the B.E. Smith Family Center web site for more information about this project.

Kids with special needs have superpowers because they have to overcome so much. We just need to help them find that power.
