I have known of and have been involved with Brighton for over 10 years. in that time I have seen it grow tremendously in size, programs offered, and excellence. It is a very well ran and managed non-profit that is always focused on its core mission, the children. Brighton has also shown strength as an organization in the past 2 to 3 years by growing and increasing fund raising in a very tough economy where many other non-profits have struggled.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

at events and interacting with families that have received services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get Brighton more of a household name among local non profits

I am in awe of everyone at the Brighton School and how they understand the challenges of serving children with developmental delays. Brighton provides a refreshing and innovative environment for the parents of and children with special needs. Everyday Brighton inspires children and parents through their many community and developmental programs & they are empowered by Brighton's many resources and inclusive community culture.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping with a children's Holiday Party and talking with the parents.

My daughter Kathryn was born with down syndrome. She is now 21 years old. I do not know what I would have done without Brighton School's help. Kathryn began receiving services from Brighton when she was three weeks old. Without the Early Childhood Intervention, I believe Kathryn would not have thrived, like she did. Not only did Brighton work with her, they provided family counceling, emotional support from other parents, educational resorces and most important... hope. Brighton School changed my life as well as Kathryns. I will never forget the great staff or the School!

I am a mother with a daughter who has down syndrome. Kathryn and my family have all experience the results of this organization.

The only thing I would say is increased funding so the teachers and therapists can have all the resources they need to serve the clients.

I am currently the Past Chairman of the Board at Brighton and I can tell you from my 10 years on that board that the phenominal job that is being done and has been done for years is greatly due the leadership of Kim Jefferies ( Executive Director) and Isai Sapien ( Chief Financial Officer). These individuals are as quality as they come. Obviously, they could not do it alone, which speaks volumes of their skills. I am blessed to have had a chance to be involved in this well run organization and wish nothing but continued success in the the future.
