Program Fees: Costs vary for each program and event, but are kept to a minimum thanks to generous volunteers and local organizations.  Full and partial fee waivers are available to those who qualify.  Please contact us to inquire about arrangements.

Transportation: Due to barriers that transportation often creates, we will be happy to assist you on information regarding public transportation.

Personal Care: The City of Chattanooga does not provide personal services such as changing of clothes, feeding, injections, etc.  Anyone requiring such services may bring a parent or personal assistant to any program or event at no extra cost.
