My first introduction to the Achievement Centers for Children was around age 10. My dad was a board member and I remember him talking about the ACC all the time! I saw over the years how much it meant to him and my mom and new by their passion and dedication to the ACC, it had to be an amazing place for children and families with disabilities. As I grew up, I decided to go to school for a degree in education with a focus on children with special needs. Becoming educated and working with special needs children throughout college, gave me an even bigger appreciation for everything the ACC does for children and families in the Cleveland area. I decided to start my professional career in Cleveland and new I wanted to be apart of this amazing organization when the time allowed. I joined the Friends group in 2010 and the Sparkle, Shimmer Shine Committee in 2011 and its been just an amazing experience. The services the ACC provides and the professional and educated staff are top of the line. I've seen first hand how the ACC has benefited a countless number of families and how children with disabilities continue to beat the odds as a direct result of the ACC. The Achievement Centers for Children continues to give hope to families and I am honored to support this organization in any and every way possible. I hold a special place in my heart for the ACC and Cleveland is extremely lucky to have a place like this in our own backyard. Cheers to the Achievement Centers for Children- there is just no place like it.
