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.
