What is Cali's Smile?

This specific non-profit is designed to assist special needs families in Mississippi to make their day to day lives easier and more functional by providing modification to their homes, funding for travel to offset expenses for out-of-town medical procedures, and assistance with purchases that improve their quality of life!

So many things we take for granted, like being able to transport our children easily, steps (or ramps) for entering and exiting our house or an adequately sized bathroom, are problem areas for this group. I hope through generous donations from friends, family members and businesses who have a heart for the special needs world, we can resolve some of these problems for the children in our state.

Meet Cali

The company’s namesake is a little girl named Cali McCleave. Cali is a 8-year-old child born with microcephaly. As a result of struggles with seizures, which in turn caused multiple medical concerns, she requires in-home nursing and around the clock care in order to thrive within her family. An intimate awareness of all of the difficulties her family faces led my husband and I to develop this non-profit. Cali is unable to speak, but she can smile, and when my husband saw that smile it touched his heart and he knew, like you would know, how special this child and others like her are. Therefore, we decided the perfect name would be Cali’s Smile.

We were so happy to complete a much needed project for a special family. Cali's Smile was able to create a parking pad for a precious girl that is wheelchair bound. Instead of struggling against gravel, her family will now be able to smoothly transition her into their home. Thanks to Mississippi Machinery for donating equipment, to Proline Plumbing and Gas and WWSolutions for water relocation, and to Brandon's Concrete LLC. 

We were blessed to work with Tony and Shawna Hayes from Marriage on a Mission to be able to purchase and deliver a generator to Shaquanda Meekins. Her daughter requires equipment in the home to assist with breathing and as you can imagine, power outages can become extremely stressful when worrying about how much battery life these machines can hold. It was such an honor to deliver this generator and to get to witness the goodness of God through volunteers and donors placed in our path recently. We are happy to give Shaquanda this peace of mind that her daughter’s medical equipment can function when the electricity goes out!!
