Success Stories

"Thank you for being so supportive and kind. I’ve felt alone on this journey for a very long time.  When my son was diagnosed with autism in 1995, there were absolutely no resources. I’m so appreciative to your staff and to Milestones to have a listening ear and an advocate for not only my son but for this Mom who has been on this road for a very long time. Bless you!!” - Jennifer Clark, Parent, Bowling Green, KY

"Our family was in crisis mode, we were given a list of the kind of help he needed but didn't know where to turn for the help. We flew all over the country seeking advice, but suggestions were vague and we couldn't find the hands on help we needed. Milestones provided our family with the information and support we couldn't find elsewhere and we want to ensure its sustainability well into the future.” - Carol Lader, Grandparent
