" I love seeing our members engage with our children and young adults with special needs. I love that they say hello to each other and know about each other. I also love the people I work with as they are all open to our mission of inclusion!"

Fun Fact! Ellen delivered and fostered 6 puppies and their mom for 8 weeks at her home.
