My son christopher has been disabled since age 12. We found there is very little assistance to families with disabled children finding the care and resources to help them get through this troubling time. The task of finding capable reliable care is daunting. There is no one place to go for information and resources and this can be devastating on a family. I had a Vision to start a non profit organization that can assist families in finding resources, funding, and medical equipment to help them care for their disabled child. I want to take all the knowledge and aquired resources and help these families.

Local and federal governments are of little help, and the amount of red tape can have a staggering effect on families. The average wait time in some circumstances can be anywhere from 60-180 days. Families with a disabled child do not have the luxury of time on their side. We want to be able to jump right in and give these families as much support as humanly possible.

Medical equipment to help these families is almost always costly and out of their reach, We want to build a network of new and used medical equipment, therapy equipment and basic necessities to be able to give these families the much needed support they need at no charge. There is a mountain of little used equipment out there that can be recycled back to those who need it the most.

Please dig deep into your hearts and help us to make Christopher's Vision a life line for these families. we need your support. every minute wasted is another disabled child who is suffering and in need of support
