Goodbye and good luck Jude Byrne!

Dear Special Haven Friends,

            It is with great sadness that we will be saying goodbye to our founder and all-around amazing woman, Jude Byrne. After all these years of helping special needs families in our community, it was time for Jude to take some time for herself and her family. Jude will be moving across the pond to Scotland. Jude was involved in all things, when it came to our special needs community. In fact, when my family met her, we didn’t know what to do, what was available for our son, or who to talk to for help. She calmly said, there are plenty of things out here mate. And before we knew it, we were bowling, playing soccer, doing baseball, attending support group meetings, and all the worry just went away. She helped so many families see all that there was to offer in our community and we will all be forever grateful. We will all miss Jude, but the board of directors of Special Haven, is dedicated to keeping her vision and her creation, Special Haven, going.

            There will be some changes in the weeks ahead. First and foremost, our availability will be changing. Starting October 8th, we will be open from 9am to 1pm from Monday to Thursday. We will be closed Friday through Sunday. This will be temporary until we can find someone to help keep the doors open longer. Also, Robert’s Chiropractic, will be taking over the space and we will be renting space from him starting in November. There will be other changes in the future as Brandon Roberts settles into the space and makes it his.

            Thank you all for your understanding. We are just happy that we can continue to serve the East Contra Costa community with our special place for special children.


Thank You,

David Chuey
