Our Current Projects
TOYS FOR TOTS at SSP :-)
For the 5th year in a row we are thrilled to help our local community by participating with the local Toys for Tots drive.
Starting on Monday, December 4th stop at our office and drop off a NEW, unwrapped Toy or a NEW Book for a child in need.
Last year we collected 500 toys/books !! Can we make it to 600 this year?
I know you can make this goal possible :-)
SSP COAT DRIVE for the LGTB Homeless Community
This year we are partnering with NEW ALTERNATIVES to help the local LGBT Homeless Community stay warm this winter.
Starting on Monday, December 4th stop at our office and drop off a NEW or lightly worn coat. We will collect until January 15th.
Will you help us help the children?
SSP FOR PUERTO RICO: HELPING FAMILIES IN NEED
Your SSP Team has been proactive in raising awareness and funds for the tragedies related to hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
Our hearts are crashed by the tragedy that has been taking place in Puerto Rico. Help has been slow so far and this one touches very close to home as some of our own SSP Team members have family over there.
We have learned that families recovering from the destruction hurricane Maria brought are in urgent need of simple things like Diapers. We can't just sit and watch. We have the power to help.
Please join us by donating what you can to the UNITED for PUERTO RICO FOUNDATION.
#LOVE IN A SAFETY PIN PROJECT
Our Company stands with Love, Equality, Kindness, Compassion and Community.
These are the values in which your SSP Team believes. By showing this 'Love in a safety pin' sticker on our door we want you to know that SSP is a Safe Haven where you will find smiles and help in the (hopefully unlikely) event that you find yourself harassed or bullied on the streets of Park Slope.
How you can help:
1) Donate ( https://www.gofundme.com/love-in-a-safety-pin) so we can keep producing and distributing stickers free of charge nationwide
2) Post on social media your photo with your sticker with hashtag #LoveInASafetyPin
3) Share this page with your friends and family :-)
Building our Local Community
LOCAL SCHOOLS OUTREACH

Please, join us in our journey by visiting the following school websites:
OUR FREE CLASSES: BRINGING FAMILIES TOGETHER
The foundation of a community is its ability to create together by being together. Our free classes are designed to teach new skills to our parents but also to bring together a group of people that otherwise would have probably never met.
We ask our attendees to share their numbers and emails and to make a friend while learning new essential parenting skills.
Help us spread the word around and make a new friend today.
Our Charities and Partners
JONAH'S JUST BEGUN FOUNDATION
Dr. Cao and your SSP Team has been working with the Jonah's Just Begun Foundation for a number of years in the effort to raise funds and awareness about the Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rare disease that affects Dr. Cao's little friend and patient Jonah.
Dr. Cao was instrumental in helping diagnose Jonah with this rare condition when Jonah was just 1 year old. At that time there was very little research and no medication available. Jonah's mom, Jill Wood has taken this matter into her own hands ad with perseverance, courage, strength and some help she has been able to assemble a team of scientists to start research. The road is long but the goals are achievable. We need your help to help this family.
Please DONATE if you can.
" My best friend Jonah has a very rare disease called San Filippo Syndrome. Jonah is just like any other kid, but Jonah is fighting against time. Help US raise funds for a cure please. " - Dr. Cao
