Thanks to you, Kathy has a team to lean on.

“I thought that I could handle everything,” Kathy said with a sigh. “I’ve been a Special Education teacher for 25 years…but when you’re in the middle of a family crisis and trying to handle it all, it’s overwhelming.”

Kathy describes a chaotic year she went through with her family, specifically her 17-year-old daughter, Alycia.

Alycia is cognitively impaired. She never had special services growing up except Early On, which assists families with children under the age of 3 who have developmental delays and/or disabilities. It wasn’t until 2014 that everything changed.

Alycia went through a traumatic experience in her family that affected her in so many ways. She struggled with psychotic episodes, depression, aggressiveness and was in and out of the hospital multiple times.
