The Mary Therese Rose Fund was formed as a 501c3 in honor of Mary Therese Rose Crilly who was born in 1998 with Joubert Syndrome.  Though Mary was profoundly  disabled, her limitless love and courage inspired those closest to her to establish this fund in her name to pay for services, orthotics and equipment for children whose parents cannot afford to provide the care their children desperately need.  Though Mary passed in 2003, her brief life was filled with joy.  It is this joy that her family wanted to make sure every special needs child and their families could have together.  This they achieve by helping families of s[ecial needs children by jelping to pay for therapies, equipment, special programs such as Saturday Stars an adaptive sports, dance, arts & crafts program.
