Local Non-Profit Organization Helping Children with Developmental Differences
Reflect is committed to giving back to the community. We recently had the opportunity to volunteer at The Warren Center’s Spring Fling. Reflect was on hand in both locations, Richardson and Garland, to help the kids with various arts and crafts. The Spring Fling Family Fun Day provides an opportunity for the kids to interact with each other and for their families to network for support.
Reflect has provided monetary support and volunteer services to help ensure The Warren Center’s children and families receive the resources and support needed to achieve their potential for many years. The Warren Center, founded in 1968, believes that every child deserves wings. Children born with disabilities or developmental differences need special care to spread their wings and reach their potential. Success is found when a child receives early treatment and a family is able to provide a loving and supportive environment for their child to grow, be accepted, and become a valued member of the community.
The Warren Center specializes in early childhood intervention services for infants, toddlers, young children and their families. Currently, The Warren Center offers several programs focused on the special needs of children. The Warren Center ECI serves children from birth to three years of age and provides in-home therapy services for children with developmental delays and disabilities. The Warren Center also offers Clinic Based Services for children three to five years of age. In addition to the services offered to children, The Warren Center has Family Education and Support, which offers professionally-led parent support groups, training sessions for parents, and most importantly, a listening ear to help families filter information, find and access resources, and become advocates for their child(ren) with special needs. The Warren Center currently services over 540 children in Early Childhood Intervention alone and about 1400 families across all programs each year.
For the seventh year in a row, Reflect is an official event sponsor for The Warren Center’s annual fundraising event, Fantasy Football Draft Night. Held in September at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the event will feature renowned broadcast journalist Scott Murray as Master of Ceremonies and special guest, retired Dallas Cowboy, Randy White.

In addition to providing annual contributions and volunteer services, Reflect organized the “Team Reflect Cycling Club”, a casual team of cyclists riding for health, friendship, and to raise awareness for The Warren Center. Team Reflect participates in a variety of rally rides across the state of Texas annually, using their time on the road to raise awareness for The Warren Center and the amazing things they are doing for children with developmental disabilities. “It has been so gratifying to get connected with The Warren Center and getting to know the great people there”, said Matt Schmitt, President & Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer of Reflect. “Getting the chance to see how much their efforts mean to the kids and families they serve is special, and we want to tell everyone we can about the program and look forward to helping as champions for them.”
