Bluestack Foundation

The Bluestack Special Needs Foundation was established in 2006. It is a voluntary organization run predominantly by parents of children with special needs and professionals who work in the field.  Its mission is two fold, to enhance the lives of people with special needs and to support families with a special need dependent.
