Friends of BVS is a 501c3 nonprofit PTCO (Parent Teacher Community Organization) for all children with developmental differences within Hancock County. We work very closely with Blanchard Valley Center, the Hancock County Board of Developmental Disabilities. We serve as the PTO for Blanchard Valley School and we outreach to other local schools. Our goal is to build an inclusive community for all children with developmental differences. We offer several school and public events that are designed specially for children with special needs. Friends of BVS is run by a group of special needs parents and educators. We came together with our own personal stories and experiences to make a difference for the children in our community. We are committed to providing free or low cost events and resources for our special needs community.
