Do you have at least one child with a disability between the ages of birth and 21? Do you live in the greater St. Louis area? Do you want to take part in our free programs, like Adventure Camp and Performing Arts, or attend our free family events? Register to become a Variety Family today!

As a Variety Family, you will be placed on our exclusive email list and will be among the first to know about upcoming program registrations, auditions, updates and more. You will also be invited to attend our family events, such as Family Celebration Day and Fall Family Fun Fest, as well as various educational and networking opportunities for parents. This is a great way for your child, his or her siblings and you, as parent or guardian, to get to know and form relationships with other families with children with special needs in the area!

While a level of financial need and a medical script is required to receive assistance with medical equipment and therapy services, our other programs and events simply require that your child is no older than 20 and has a medically diagnosed physical or developmental disability. We serve all families meeting these requirements in 30 counties in Missouri and Illinois – check the map here – you just have to apply!

More information about our process and who we help may be found here. To apply now, simply fill out this Variety Program application and send it to Senior Programs Manager Robin Diehl via email, via fax at 314-731-6866 or via mail to:

Variety the Children’s Charity
Attn: Applications
11840 Westline Industrial Dr
STE 220
St. Louis, MO 63146

Once your application is accepted, you will be added to our Variety Family e-mail list and will begin to receive more information about upcoming events and programs. Don’t forget to also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date as well! We can’t wait for you to be a part of the Variety St. Louis family!
