Kya’s Krusade, Inc. is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Kya’s Krusade was named after and inspired by a special young lady, named Kya, who was born with a rare condition called Arthrogryposis. The organization was co-founded by Kya’s mother and godmother, after several exhaustive searches to find information, resources and support for Kya and her family. Kylie and Ashandra decided to be proactive and become a resource and source of support for other children with physical disabilities and their families. Kya’s Krusade became fully operational in July 2007.
The Kya’s Krusade logo is ” Kya’s Krusade’s initials reflected to form the abstract wings of a butterfly, to imply the powerful transformation that children served by the organization may go through as they learn new ways to move.” – Lisa McLymont, Very Ideal Design (Kya’s Krusade Graphic Design Partner).
Kya’s Krusade identifies and creates programs, services and tools that enable children with physical disabilities to reach their maximum potentials and support their families throughout their special journeys. We provide support, education and assistance through our website, provision of resource information and Art Therapy and Financial Assistance Programs. We strive to form a diverse community network and provide opportunities to enable equal access to all available informational, emotional, medical and financial sources of support.
