I am very fortunate to be a current board member and the immediate past chairman of the board of the Achievement Centers for Children (ACC). I have thoroughly enjoyed representing this phenomenal organization in our community and cannot recommend the ACC more highly. As a board member I have had the benefit of witnessing the great work the ACC does for children with disabilities and their families for the last seven years. At our board meetings and special events I have met the parents of the children we serve and heard their stories. I can assure you that there is rarely a dry eye in the room following the true success stories of the children and families we serve. These families often find themselves in the most painful and challenging time of their lives as they struggle to manage the news that their child has a disability...then they find the Achievement Centers and realize there is someone else out there that cares and will help them navigatge this new world...that there is real hope for their child to reach his or her potential...that there is a place they can go for answers, therapies, education, recreation, friendship and support. The Achievement Centers is an amazing place, led by a worldclass management team, with an incredbibly caring and passionate group of employees that gives 110% to the children and families they serve. I highly recommend this organization to families looking for assistance for their child, to funding sources looking for a great place to support and to anyone that shares a passion for helping children with disabilities and their families.
