The Legacy of Kelsey Harrington 
(article in Waterford Patch April 30, 2012)
The Kelsey Shannon Bartol Harrington Foundation 
was created in 2008 to honor the memory of a severely  challenged, heroic little girl who affected hundreds, now thousands,of people across the US. Kelsy's story gives us all hope and faith in the promise of science combined with the love, faith and persistence of the special needs community.

Since the Foundation launched, we have provided hundreds of scholarships for local high school seniors, and also supported hundreds of special needs children at the Arc-sponsored Summer Camp Harkness!
Be sure to visit Kelsey's Vision, a multi-sensory interactive room, filled with fun activities, at the Children's Museum of Southeastern Connecticul!    Click here for more information.
Please support our work by attending our fun-tastic fundraisers!

Since our founding in 2008, the KSBH Foundation has provided over $350,000 to advocate for children needing special care.

The positive impact on these children and their families would not be possible without you.

Thank you for partnering with us in our concern for these children and their families.
