Dallas Morning News – Expanding Services for Children with Disabilities and Their Families

Often overlooked by organizations, caregivers get relief with new Ability Connection program called Respite.

“Most nonprofits, by definition and mission, focus exclusively on the recipients of their services without directing any resources to the caregivers who sacrifice so much to improve the lives of loved ones in need.
