If you are planning on coming to Cloudland Station next weekend (Oct. 24-25), to enjoy the fall mountain scenery, the grand opening of the This Old House Cottage at Cloudland Station, and the festival fun of food trucks, hay rides, pumpkin painting, games, and artisans, a portion of your ticket will support Siskin Children’s Institute. Founded in 1950, Siskin Children’s Institute is a non-profit organization based in Chattanooga, Tennessee that helps children with special needs and families through education, pediatric healthcare services, home- and community- based programs and outreach services in the field of disabilities.

image001More than a half century ago, two Chattanooga businessmen devoted their lives to serving their community and reaching out to people with disabilities.They established the Siskin Foundation in 1950; and nine years later, they opened a rehabilitation center to provide outpatient services, including physical therapy, speech and language therapy, and even free dental care.

Today, their legacy lives on at Siskin Children’s Institute.

This video tells the stories of amazing kids like Tinsley and how they are being served at Siskin today. In 1962, the Siskin brothers founded the 365 Club to build a legacy of giving, visit the 365 Club section to find out how you can help Siskin be a lifeline for families living with disabilities.
