FAMILIES TOGETHER FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
April 12, 2011

My son is an only child, somewhat shy and has developmental disabilties, autism, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. He desperately needed peers to draw him out of his isolation and give him a sense of inclusion. Families Together volunteers - those lovely college-age volunteers with endless energy and enthusiasm - were able to provide him with those things. Meanwhile, I could learn from wondeful guest speakers and share life exeperience with other parents, knowing my son was enjoying the heck out of the weekend. (They even got him to dance!)

The Great!

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

Several Families Together weekend retreats.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have weekend retreats more often.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & Spent a rare, relaxing weekend. Both my son and I felt pampered, apprecaited, respected and free!.
