Dear Friends,
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that planes take off against the wind.” – Henry Ford
Raising a child can be overwhelming, even under the best of circumstances. When I tell people that raising a child with special needs has been the greatest privilege of my life, Henry Ford’s words ring truer than ever in my mind. There is no one that will ever love us more purely than a special child. For many local families, House of Possibilities is their copilot in the blessed journey of raising a special needs child. When the winds of life blow the strongest against us, we fly higher than ever before.
We are continuing to improve he quality of our programs and staffing, but we cannot succeed without your help. Please consider making a donation as part of our Annual Appeal. Your support will help us provide respite services and high quality development programs to local families in need.
Thank you!
Paula Kavolius
Founder, President
