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


In 2018 the proceeds from the Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy supported the creation of an exciting new space… the B.E. Smith Family Center. This state-of-the-art facility is the new home of Britain Development and Early Learning at AdventHealth 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.

In 2019 the proceeds of the Tiny Tim Holiday Fantasy will further support the families of the B.E. Smith Family Center by enhancing the services and experience of our families.

Visit the B.E. Smith Family Center website 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.
