The Advocare Foundation, Ltd., formerly known as The Brayson Foundation, has been assisting children and adults with special needs for over 40 years. Who are these people? Those with autism, those with physical and mental handicaps, those with post-traumatic stress syndrome, to name a few. Why is this assistance needed? Because many special needs people are unable to avail themselves of services provided by state and federal government agencies due to the complexities of the application processes and the unavailability of programs which match their needs.
The special needs population traditionally has been the hardest to identify. Yet the need is tremendous for help. These past three decades, we have been aiding special needs children and adults, caregivers, scholars and educators. We are proud to be part of The Advocare Foundation, an organization that maintains a keen focus on the "at risk" population we serve.
I was asked to join this Board of Directors in 2006 and I have never regretted my decision to become a Director, which led to my becoming Chairman and President. As a publisher, it is not every day that I feel good about my daily decisions; but my work for the Advocare Foundation has allowed me to feel daily the good that we do in this world.
