Your Sunshine is a 501(c) 3 charitable nonprofit organization that was created by a core group of enthusiastic, philanthropic, and dedicated founders with a deep passion for effecting change in the human condition. Your Sunshine’s mission is to enrich and improve the social, physical, emotional, and recreational capabilities of all children, youth, and adults, so that they can fully discover and develop their full potential in a nurturing environment, and be prepared to make a positive impact in the world. The main objective driving each new day at Your Sunshine is to turn limitations into possibilities. Our founder, Anastasia Martynova, grew up as an individual with special needs and gained lifelong insights through her first-hand experiences of what it truly feels like to be different from others. Ms. Martynova devoted to deliver the robust programs and curriculum to persons with special needs to best help them develop skills, talents, and friendships, provide the support of community, and to empower them and add worth and value to their view of themselves.
Since 2016, Your Sunshine has been very active at the community offering free classes, day camps inclusive for all, recreational and social events, customized birthday celebrations, and a wide array of workshops and classes. We also have been offering after-school programs that provide students with academic enrichment opportunities, as well as additional activities designed to complement the districts’ academic programs. Since the first days of our dedicated service, we engaged over 250 volunteers, conducted 50 programs, classes, and events, and touched the hearts of over 400 kids, youth, and adults. We also successfully launched our first Hidden Talents Shine Up Talent Show in May 2017 where 18 performers impressed the audience with their amazing performances and over 200 people came to support the show.
