We at The G.I.F.T.S. Foundation believe each individual with a disability is a gift and has the right to live a happy productive life.
We believe every parent or caregiver should have the knowledge, resources, support and understanding to advocate on their loved one's behalf to ensure they have a positive experience.
Educate - Knowledge is power! By educating parents about community services and resources available to children with disabilities, parents can make informed decisions regarding the best options for their children.
Connect - You are not alone! We understand that it's a struggle to figure out the special needs process. By connecting with other parents in similar situations, we can share what we have learned and celebrate in each other's personal triumph's.
Empower - Together we are stronger! By uniting with a network of parents, we specifically learn how to be self supporting, be self reliant and be self sustaining for our families.
