What our families are saying
Beyond grateful and blessed
Throughout the years you have continually touched our family’s heart and lives in such positive and impactful ways that we are overfilled with gratitude.
Most recently, at Cookies with Santa, Emily was able to have one of the best holiday experience possible. As you know, her disabilities do not allow her to be be able to enjoy the more transitional mall experiences with Santa. Trying this in previous years has always ensued extreme anxiety followed by an embarrassing meltdown. We’ve always longed for a positive experience with Santa for her and a nice photo to remember the occasion. This year, because of you your family and the all amazing volunteers at All in Need, we were merrily able to fulfill these wishes for Emily and our family.
Your creation of a non-threatening and non-judgmental environment that is filled with fun, love, support, sensory friendliness and familiarity, were she can take the lead and go at her pace is a Godsend.
You initially took the time to solely play reindeer games with her and she had such an amazing time doing that with you, that it broke the ice of her shyness and hesitation and set the tone for her to relax, feel comfortable, and safe and be able to enjoy and participate in the rest of the wonderful activities you offered.
We hope that you, your family, your volunteers sponsors, grantors, and supporters know just how important All in Need is to our family and the special needs community. We cannot say thank you enough and we are beyond grateful and blessed to have you as part of our family and lives.
With all our love and gratitude

a godsend for kiddos
Cannot sing the praises about Autumn and AiN enough. Autumn works endlessly to bring these wonderful events to the community each month. Her special events are a godsend for kiddos who might have a hard time with similar events in a larger setting. I know first hand how devoted she is to these kids and I can honestly says she loves my son with all her heart. And the feeling is more than mutual. There are very, very few people that are not only able and willing to watch my little guy, but that I would trust to watch him. Autumn and her staff meet all the my requirements, and then some. We are so very blessed to have met her and have her and AiN in our lives.
