PACTs mission is to promote the development of young children with special needs and their families through programs providing comprehensive assessments, early intervention services, family support services, parent education, counseling and specialized childcare.

PACT: Helping Children with Special Needs began as a demonstration project at the University of Maryland Hospital, Department of Pediatrics in 1978. Funded by Maryland Childrens Medical Services, it was one of Marylands first early intervention programs for infants and toddlers who were at high risk for or who had identified developmental delays. In September 1981, the program transitioned from its status as a university project to that of a private, non-profit organization. The new organization was officially incorporated as Intervention with Parents and Children Together, Inc., but was commonly known in the community as PACT. Later, its Board legally changed the name of the organization to include a better description of its mission, i.e., PACT: Helping Children with Special Needs.

In March, 1998, PACT became an affiliate of the Kennedy Krieger Institute, a decision that brought new resources to both organizations. Although affiliated, PACT retained its own 501-c-3 status, a separate Board of Directors and responsibility for securing funding for its programs.
