Foundation For Special People (FFSP) sponsors a wide variety of events and activities that are community based with the goal of involving the participants in a variety of recreational experiences designed to build upon each individual’s skills in the areas of socialization and community living while developing appropriate behaviors.

Three annual events offered through FFSP are the “Sweetheart Ball” in February, the “Western Extravaganza” in April, and the “Snowflake Ball” in December held at the Proud Bird Restaurant in Los Angeles. Approximately 200 to 300 individuals with developmental disabilities attend each of the events each year. These two major events give these individuals a chance to dress in their finest attire, interact with others in a festive environment, enjoy a formal, sit-down meal, and dance to a live band.

FFSP offers special events throughout the year. These events have included a Halloween Party and Dance, Day at the Races, Festival of Lights in Newport Beach, Disneyland, Disney Adventures, Knott’s Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, Universal Studio, Aquarium of the Pacific, bowling, and movies.
