Our Kids

special spaces buffalo room galleries banner

Many rooms at Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and other hospitals throughout WNY are filled with children fighting for their lives, and families who are struggling to make ends meet.  For these children and families, small victories and miracles are often what gets them through this challenging time. Special Spaces Buffalo works hard to create those small miracles.

Our mission is simple; create “dream” bedrooms for children with life threatening illnesses in the Western New York area.  Their very own “special space” to heal, find peace, and just be a kid.

The original idea for Special Spaces was created by Jennifer
 Swain in Knoxville, TN.  Lynn Weber-Wall watched an episode of Secret Millionaire and saw Jennifer and her family create a princess bedroom for a little girl who had cancer. It inspired her to start the Buffalo’s own non-profit chapter of Special Spaces. Since that episode of Secret Millionaire aired in May of 2011, over 20 chapters of Special Spaces have opened up around the country.
