Review for Sunshine Nevada Organization, Las Vegas, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a young child with autism, you are unable to participate in so many milestone events that typically developing children attend. Whether it be due to your sensory issues, your challenged social skills or your struggles to communicate your wants, needs or feelings, living in a body with this neurological disorder is tough. The Torino Foundation offered my daughter the chance to attend summer camp in a safe, accepting and nurturing environment that this mom never thought would be possible. She's 18 now and has so many happy memories of her camp experiences that she still proudly displays her Summer Camp door plaque on her bedroom door that she gets to see every day. She talks about the friends she made, the fun she had swimming, dancing, games around the campfire and sleepovers all the time. Thank you, Torino Foundation for bringing some normalcy to Jamie's childhood and giving her life lasting memories that she cherishes and helps her embrace her abilities. Navigating the world of autism has brought us to many non-profits. They all have the right intention but Torino Foundation knocks it out of the ballpark for us. I just hope you're around a hundred years from now because you know how to make that difference. From the bottom of this mom's heart, THANK YOU.
