Charlee's Story

Charlee’s story is about a beautiful, fierce, wild girl who brought together an entire community, inspired thousands of people, and showed us time after time that sometimes the smallest people are the strongest. Charlee’s extra chromosome brought a fresh perspective and new understanding to her family and friends and they will forever be changed by that experience. She spent every moment of her too-short life experiencing things to the fullest. She loved deeply, laughed every day, and showed us what pure joy looks like.

What We Do

Bereavement Grants

In times of loss, Charlee's Orchard is here to offer compassionate support through our bereavement grants. We understand the emotional and financial toll that comes with the loss of a child, especially one with Down Syndrome. Our bereavement grants aim to ease the burden by providing assistance for funeral expenses and other associated costs during this difficult time.

Medical Equipment Grants

Access to necessary medical equipment is crucial for children with Down Syndrome. Charlee's Orchard is dedicated to helping families acquire the essential medical equipment required for their child's well-being. Our medical equipment grants aim to ensure that every child has access to the resources they need to thrive.

Sensory Farm

Sensory Farm

A sensory farm dedicated to providing a free and accessible experience for children with disabilities. This unique initiative allows all kids to explore agriculture, play in an inclusive playground, and participate in activities like fruit picking. In addition to creating an inclusive space, the farm promotes meaningful employment by hiring young people with Down Syndrome, fostering a supportive environment for skill development and community integration.
