#GivingTuesday at Encompass – How will you give?

For many families, Encompass has been a beacon of hope lighting the way toward a better future. Encompass has been there to help families build healthy foundations for their children for more than 50 years by combining quality services with compassion and understanding. By supporting families, we strengthen our entire community.

The Ahners are one example of an Encompass family. Shocked by a diagnosis that upended their world, Dan and Dana Ahner found comfort, support, and hope in the Encompass Birth to Three program.

“Dealing with unknown or unexpected circumstances as a parent can feel like you are constantly treading water, just trying to stay afloat. When we were drowning, Encompass was the one who pulled us from that water.”
– Dana and Dan Ahner

Their daughter’s team of therapists never gave up on her or underestimated her abilities, and with their guidance, she was able to achieve milestones that many believed to be impossible. Years later, when the Ahners adopted two foster children into their family who suffered from effects of prenatal drug exposure, they reunited with the family of support they had found at Encompass.

“Encompass helped us give all three of our kids their best chance at life, and because of that, Encompass will always be part of our family.”

We are asking you to give this fall to support the broad range of Early Learning, Pediatric Therapy, and Family Enrichment programs at Encompass that support the whole family. With your support, together we can ensure that families like the Ahners have the help they need to flourish and reach their full potential.

“When I think of the many families who haven’t even begun their unexpected journeys, it gives me comfort to know they will have Encompass to turn to.”
