​Finding Encouragement and Hope

Stories July 25th, 2014

When Kathy’s daughter, Allie, was four months old and in the hospital, Kathy was supported with a parent-to-parent connection. Kathy says she gained an understanding that she is not alone – others are going through similar challenges and finding encouragement and hope.

When Allie entered first grade, Kathy needed information, training and assistance to support her daughter’s needs in special education. "Raising Special Kids was a great resource in helping us get appropriate services in place at her school.”

Allie’s success in school has led to a wonderful outcome. Allie recently enrolled in classes at a community college.
