The Kenny Rogers Children’s Center in Sikeston, Mo., which provides occupational, physical, and speech therapies to children, recently underwent a 7,000-square-foot expansion. Included in the expansion is a Motional Analysis Lab, which is currently the only one in the state of Missouri.

The Center has also been awarded a $500,000 grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health. With the help of this grant, the center is able to serve more than 350 children with special needs, up to the age of 21, at no charge to the families.

“I am thrilled by the support that the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center continues to receive, and I think this grant speaks to the level of quality the staff has achieved. I am so proud to be associated with this center and the community,” said Rogers. “The center continues to provide such a wonderful service for families, at no cost to them. In an effort to keep it all going, I will be coming back to Sikeston in 2014 for a fundraising event. I hope to see you all there.”

Since its inception in 1973, the 17,000-square-foot facility continues to grow and has become one of the county’s premiere facilities for children’s care.
