... a Board member and mom speaks out

PRIDE has always been there for not only my son but for my entire family. This organization goes above and beyond for those with intellectual disabilities. It has provided my son with the work that makes him feel good and the social connection that makes him smile. He has great self-esteem and enjoys attending PRIDE's Programs.
