Great Hearts Initiatives | Special Spaces Chicagoland

Mission

Special Spaces is a non-profit 501 C (3) organization that creates dream bedrooms for children with life-threatening medical illnesses. This is a place that only the child can dream or imagine while addressing their medical needs. Our focus is answering one question; Where does a child go when battling a serious illness to find peace and comfort?

Special Spaces was founded in July 2004 on the precedent that children battling life-threatening illnesses need their own special space. This is a place of hope and inspiration, and a special space to find peace and comfort. As of today, Special Spaces has created hundreds of bedrooms across the country. It is the vision of our organization to have a Special Spaces Director everywhere there is a child in need.

Thanks Great Hearts Community:

THANK YOU so much!

We are so incredibly grateful for your support. Last year, we accomplished every one of our goals because of support like yours. We were able to add 4 new associate directors who lead their own teams. We were able to celebrate with our very first Gala and we completed 33 dream room makeovers.

Thank you so much for your belief in our mission to Change children’s lives one bedroom at a time.

My best,

Kelly Knox
Illinois State Director
Special Spaces

*******************

How it works
We first meet with the child and family to find out their wants and needs for their dream bedroom. After interviewing the child and family, a team of contractors, seamstresses, painters and a group of eager volunteers meet up and in a single day transform the bedroom into a new place of hope, comfort and joy!

How Can I Help?
Special Spaces relies solely on the generous donations of local businesses, corporations, community and youth groups and foundations. Ask your group or business to sponsor a room for a child in need and help us change a life!

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"Special Spaces did a makeover for our friend's 8 year old son who is being treated for an inoperable brain tumor. The transformation was amazing and he feels like he is own cool dorm room to hang out and sometime he even lets his little sister hang out there too!"
