We all benefit when children with special needs are given what they need to become as successful in their community as their abilities allow. No parent should have to choose between seeing their child thrive and putting gas in the tank or food on the table. The current health insurance structure is forcing families of children with special needs to decide between paying for effective, evidence-based therapies and services or paying their household bills. The weight of realizing that your child’s future isn’t affordable is a tremendous burden to bear. This is why we were founded. Established in 2012 by committed medical professionals, families of children with special needs and community members, Elevations provides funding for access to the resources and support that these children need to reach their full potential and improve their families’ overall quality of life.
