At Leap of Faith Clothing, we are committed to paying it forward. A portion of all proceeds from the sales of our t-shirts will be dedicated to the Frankie Lemmon School in Raleigh, NC. Supporting this exceptional school is an honor. A child entering the program at the Frankie Lemmon School is truly experiencing superheroes in their finest form. We hope that we can help each child find his or her imagination and find the support they need to develop!
As the first preschool in Wake County for children with special needs, the Frankie Lemmon School & Development Center has worked to fill the special education needs in the Triangle area for over 30 years. The school’s highly trained teaching staff provides children with an individualized educational experience that ultimately leads to achieving personal development and independence.
The school is a non-profit, tuition free developmental center and is not affiliated with any church or religious organization. Children are enrolled at the school through a partnership between the Frankie Lemmon School and Wake County Public School’s Preschool Services. All teachers have certification through the state of North Carolina.
All children are placed at the Frankie Lemmon School by the Wake County Public School System using State funds for developmental day centers. The Frankie Lemmon Foundation provides additional funding to the school allowing them to charge no tuition or fees to the families.
