It has been a devastating summer for us - I know the disability community took quite a hit with Harvey.
Some of you are still displaced - and children with special needs have been forced to find new schools.
Some organizations have been wonderful and stepped up...we definitely know who to depend on...

I know there are issues still with housing...accessible housing is an issue.

Many people are working on these issues and we have learned so much....

I want to take the time to wish you a Blessed Holiday Season and lets pray no hurricanes this 2018.
