Please continue to support parents

Please continue to support parents caring for children with significant support needs. 
We are dealing with so much already: medical care, daily care, educational advocacy, chronic grief, emotional and physical exhaustion. 
The current program helps families like mine who have few employment options due to the demands of caring for a disabled loved one. Even with attendant care for their child, many parents are not able to work full-time jobs because they must be on-call to handle any issues that arise with behaviors, health, school, jobs.
