Zane’s Inc. is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization. We help children and adults with special needs by educating their families about beneficial resources that will improve their loved one’s academic achievement or enhance their quality of everyday life.

The goal was to help bridge the gap between parents, providers, and agencies while promoting education and advocacy skills for parents.  Funds awarded from the Family Support Fund initiative help to pay for camps, therapies, respite, medical expenses, assistive devices, and adaptive equipment needed to meet daily challenges.  Zane’s is organized and operated by a passionate,  volunteer Board of Directors.


Mission Statement

The mission of Zane’s, Inc. is to provide services for children and adults with special needs. This is done through funding assistance; and community outreach and educational programs.

Vision Statement

Funding assistance through our Family Support Fund initiative and educational community outreach programs are the cornerstones of Zane’s, Inc. Through fundraising efforts and outside community grants, we provide funding assistance for children and adults who have disabilities so that they are able to receive vital services and necessities not covered by insurance, government agencies or other resources. The ultimate goal is to help each individual reach their maximum potential so that they have an opportunity to be a contributing member of society. Through our community outreach programs, we aim to educate and increase awareness of disabilities and focus on the abilities of individuals.
