As a parent to a child with special needs, I know first hand what it feels like to be in crisis mode, not knowing where to start to access critical resources and services to help my son. At Unite Us, my goal is to help grow a network to relieve that burden from parents and those in crisis so that they can focus on what is important, living their best life.
I’ve always believed real change occurs through intentional collaboration. At Unite Us, I get the opportunity everyday to support a network of partners working together to create lasting change in communities across Iowa.
