"In the two years that Sami has been at Heartspring, she has gone from needing two staff without community outings to being at restaurants, shopping malls, & movies with a group of peers and an adult. I am treated at Heartspring as a valued member of the team and my input to her programming is appreciated and welcomed. Thanks to Heartspring, I am finally able to proudly show off the sweet, precious spirit that has always been the core of who Sami is. Sami was so mishandled over the years and Heartspring found ways to chip away at the anger and frustration that had become the normal response she would show. They replaced her behaviors with functional skills, appropriate behavior, and how to have pride in her accomplishments. I have always called Sami my diamond in the rough, and thanks to Heartspring she continues to shine brighter with each new skill taught.
Thank you Heartspring for letting the brilliance in her soul shine through."
Sincerely, Samantha’s mom Dawn
