We Can’t Do It Without You!

Join Raising Special Kids’ Monthly Giving

Laura’s son had been diagnosed with ADHD and a developmental disability. Both Laura and her son were struggling when she contacted Raising Special Kids.  “I was having a hard time ‘getting’ my own kid. I found myself slipping into a deep depression and losing faith in my ability to be a good mom.”

Laura began a program designed to provide her with skills and strategies for parents raising children with difficult behavior.

After the first session, Laura recalled, “I felt like I had won the lottery.” As the program continued, she compared the experience to rock climbing, “I gained purchase – a handhold so I could pull myself up. I really think it saved my life!”

Last year Raising Special Kids helped 9,057 families.

And we’ll do it again this year.

But we can’t do it alone. We need YOU!
