Debra Vines: "Being A Part Of The Answer"
Meet Debra Vines: the mother of a son impacted by Autism - A champion for families living with Autism and Other Developmental Disorders - and The Executive Director of The Answer Inc.
Not too long ago, her family, as well as a few members of her extended family at The Answer Inc. - were featured on PBS News Hour - in a RACE MATTERS segment aimed at showing how; Children of color with Autism face disparities of care and isolation.
I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THAT VIDEO WITH YOU BELOW.
I sincerely hope that you enjoyed that story, and as part of our commitment to making sure you know; who we are, what we do, and how you can help... we invite you to VISIT US HERE whenever the spirit moves you - where you can get to know thoughtful, committed citizens like Debra as well as some of our other Board Members, Families, and Community Building Partners who have already made a commitment to "Being A Part of The Answer."
It is commonly believed that if you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem... or as we like to put it - if you are not being a part of the answer then you are likely to become a part of the problem. My hope is that you will continue "Being A Part Of The Answer" by Opening Your Heart To Autism Today and supporting THIS YEAR'S WALKATHON.
With state budgets being cut regularly, it is only through your support that we are able to continue in our commitment to being The Best Autism Awareness and Support Agency in the Chicagoland Area and to continue delivering on our promises to the families that we serve.
