 “Digging For Treasure in People (Without Getting Buried Alive)"

 Caroline McGraw

 

Special needs families and direct-support staff have something in common:  overwhelm. We believe that every person is a treasure, yet that belief gets buried beneath the weight of responsibility. We seek to help   people with special needs shine and live a fulfilling life in the community ... but how do we encourage others when we are discouraged ourselves!
