Review for Hephzibah Childrens Association, Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with Hephzibah for almost 8 years in the group home and it was one of my most treasured experiences. This organization has foster care and group home programs serving children in need of care due to experiences of abuse or neglect. This nonprofit operates with a steady focus on children and a staff of devoted professionals. I truly enjoyed my experience working at Hephzibah and during that time I saw many lives changed for the better.

Review for The MAGIC Foundation, Warrenville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I just found the MAGIC Foundation this year when I was faced with a medical mystery with my son who is now 3. He stopped growing properly when he was less than six months old and after a parade of doctors I realized that it was up to me to find out how to help him. This has been my philosophy until this year when I discovered MAGIC and began to communicate with an amazing parent who volunteers her time to help newbees like me understand this very rare disorder, Russell Silver Syndrome. My son is finally diagnosed officially and now, again, I am turning to MAGIC for the most current information on what I can do to help him grow and prevent damage to his development due to the complicated effects of this disorder. I am finding one doctor after the next that DOES NOT KNOW what we are dealing with. But thanks to MAGIC I have a network of parents to communicate with, the awesome volunteer who has given me her cell phone, and a 300 page book that they produced to tell me what I need to know right now. They have given me an important road map and an ongoing resource to continue helping my son and it is extremely reassuring.

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

the reassurance it provides me by being so knowledgeable and connected to experts on these disorders. It is one place where I know I can get answers after having seen literally dozens of doctors who couldn't explain my son's issues.
