Memorial Wall

The Special Touch Memorial Wall began when the family of Ashley Marie Aakre desired to do something in her memory that made a significant impact in the lives of people with disabilities.

Over the years, Special Touch Ministry continued to receive donations from families and friends of many who are no longer with us. These donations go into a Memorial Fund and are used to provide scholarships to those unable to afford the cost of attending of our programs.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of someone
Link to Donate Page.

The Special Touch Memorial Wall honors our departed loved ones as well as the generosity of many individuals who share our vision for serving people impacted by disability. Donors names are not listed for confidentiality reasons.
