I tried to find out information on resources in the state of Arkansas for my daughter who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. I was told that there was nothing this organization could do for me because I did not live in or around the Little Rock area. I have since found the information out on my own through other agencies. I will not refer anyone to or call this organization again.
