Having this day be free financially, and probably most importantly judgment free, was truly appreciated by our family.”     ~Maine parent~

“It was such an awesome, supportive environment today. Climbing is an activity we never would have tried because of all the unknowns. Would he like it? Would he try it? How would we weather all the stares from a meltdown and negative talk? We didn’t have to sweat any of that today; everyone there was wonderful and we got to try something new as a family.”      ~Maine parent~
