During this wonderful season of gratitude, check out this beautiful message from the Kline family. You can make a difference for families in your community by making a gift to Jawonio today. We thank you for your support!
|"Brandon was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 15 months and referred to Jawonio for an evaluation. Unbeknownst to us at the time, this special relationship would span 18 years (and still growing.) Brandon started in Early Intervention and continued with Jawonio services until he was 18, receiving countless hours of physical, occupational, and speech therapies and attended the Summer Education Program. Jawonio staff gave us needed guidance and support to help navigate a journey we were not prepared for. Today, Brandon is 20 years old and a Junior at Marist College majoring in Information Technology, living on campus and experiencing life as an independent college student. We are so grateful for what Jawonio has given to Brandon…the independence and the strength to persevere when things get tough, and a foundation to believe he can overcome any challenge. Thank you to all of our wonderful friends at Jawonio for helping Brandon become the man we had always hoped he would be."
