What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

For individuals with developmental disabilities, local resources can be limited and without extra support, parents could be forced to move the family south or put their loved ones into institutional care. There are families who have very young children (ages birth to three) who may be at risk for developmental delays. Many families need or want guidance on how to build stronger relationships with their children, so that their children develop good social-emotional skills and grow up healthier. There are elders in our community who need additional assistance in order to remain in their own homes, so they don't have to move down south.
