Today I want to share this news story. The lady in it is a member of my WrapAround team and she is amazing! Diane is wonderful – articulate and emotionally moving while still maintaining both her and her son’s dignity. No one could have done it better!

Diane credits her dear friend, Susan, for helping her get through it. Amazing women.

  1. What is a WrapAround team?

    • Holly says:

      WrapAround is a service provided to families with special needs children. While most services focus on the child with the issues WrapAround focuses on the whole family providing support for parents and siblings. My WrapAround team has helped me access services for both the kids and myself; filled out forms; jump through governmental hoops; and access funds. Also, they help to build a community of support around the family so they talk with friends and family and ask how they can help/what skills they can offer to support the family in need. It’s an amazing service.
