Testimonials

Grace-Kolenda-wetb.jpg

 

Can you imagine the joy we felt when we received news that we were receiving a scholarship from Family Hope Foundation to help pay for Grace's Occupational Therapy at The Center for Childhood Development? Steven and I still get emotional talking about this today. Family Hope Foundation understands the emotional and financial strain that comes with helping a child with special needs.

The scholarship was the difference between our daughter continuing to develop her skills or experiencing setbacks during her fundamental years. Thank you for believing in Grace and making this dream a reality for so many families.
