Our Impact in the Community!
"S.O.A.K has been instrumental in helping my family accept my daughter's diagnosis, build a support network and access various community resources. Upon initial diagnosis, I felt isolated and overwhelmed. Through attending various S.O.A.K sponsored events and joining the online support group, I quickly realized I was not on this journey alone. We were able to establish friendships with other families. We started attending events that facilitated social interactions for my daughter without fear of how she would act or if she would be accepted. We learned about various therapies and providers that could potentially help my daughter. Most importantly, S.O.A.K has helped me see that my daughter is full of potential. With some help, that potential can be unlocked and is limitless."
"I met the folks from S.O.A.K. about 4 months ago while searching for someone who could help with my son. He is a new diagnosis ASD. I felt so overwhelmed. Immediately everyone made me feel so welcome. They offered up their advice based on true life experiences and held me up when the process seemed so daunting. How wonderful it has been to know that such a great, grass roots agency is out there for everyone to be a part of. It takes a village."
