Attend an event at Joya

At Joya Child & Family Development, we see possibility in every child and our staff delights in their success. As the only Neurodevelopmental Center of Excellence in our region, we aim to impact as many children and families as possible. Our many different events help raise funds to support Joya’s ongoing operations as well as our Foundation, ensuring those who need our help can get it, even if they can’t pay.

Join us for one of our annual events, and leave happy knowing you’re impacting a child for a lifetime.

Joya Fun Run and Family Fun Community Fair

Join us as we Run For Joya and raise funds for children with developmental delays and disabilities. All proceeds directly benefit the program to ensure children can receive services they need, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.

In conjunction with our Fun Run, Joya is hosting a Family Fun Community Fair! There is no cost to attend the community fair.

Kids for Kids Penny Drive

For 25 years, our Annual Kids for Kids Penny Drive has brought together families, students, educators, Joya trustees and other community volunteers who care about kids. Traditionally, the event includes presentations to kids throughout the school year, culminating in our Community Penny Drive Day each spring. However, in 2020, COVID restrictions forced the entire event online. Joya will continue to adapt depending on the latest COVID guidelines.
