Review for A Touch of Understanding Inc, Granite Bay, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ATOU has changed my life! I developed a neurological disorder in my 30s and had to give up my career. ATOU has given me a new purpose in my life. I love talking and working with the school children. It is very rewarding to share my experience living with a disability. My main message to the kids is "I'm just like you" and they understand. Leslie DeDora and her team of staff and volunteers are so dedicated!! They work tirelessly to ensure that ALL people are treated with respect and kindness.

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

improved empathy and understanding in the students' behavior towards each other and how they interact with special-needs and disabled students. ATOU's disability awareness program is fantastic and it really reaches the kids.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

making new friends, sharing my story, making a difference, and having a purpose in life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world by ensuring that everyone was treated with respect, dignity and understanding. What a wonderful thing !!!
