We aren't here to just talk, but we will listen and we will help to make the changes YOU want with your children, in the schools, and in your community.
Real support... real change.
the difference we make
I cannot recall the last time I saw Dasha so happy and carefree and thoroughly enjoying herself with her peers.
What makes our organization unique?
The perspective we bring is family-oriented. Our staff are parents or guardians of children who have experienced the same challenges and successes as the families we serve.
We have walked in the shoes of being part of a family that deals with the daily realities, blessings, and challenges of having children with these special needs.
I went to a meeting today that made me feel....I don't know, less alone. I heard stories of others who have to overcome more obstacles than me and they still smile. It gives me hope that things will get better.....
