    I have worked with kids and low income households for a long time! This is definitely something that I want to share with them. I am glad to know they are available!

    This grant could really help change a family’s life. We have insurance that covers all of Jade’s speech, OT and PT therapies. But if it didn’t we would be in a world of trouble. It is important that the kids get the help they need. Money shouldn’t be an issue.

    So good to see companies helping families in need. Some people would put off medical treatment because of the expense. Good to see that people can get help.
