I am one of the founding members of GAB, Inc. who formed this organization with other mothers of children with special needs. As parents to a child with special needs, our resources were limited. When forming this organization, we thought other parents/caregivers were probably dealing with similar situations as ourselves. This foundation has strengthened many families in Southern Nevada by giving them the necessary support to take one day at a time. I am proud to be part of this organization and what GAB has done to support families.

I have been with GAB for 6 years and nothing can effect your outlook as seeing our team at work. The love that goes into caring for an individual with special needs is shared by our staff and volunteers. Respite is like taking a deep breath knowing that your loved one is being cared for while you "Take a Break".

We are not there to replace you. We cannot do that. But we can be there for you when you need the time.
