Working with Hatch, Turtle Wing Foundation provides funding for students needing educational therapies to fill in any gaps in their academic and social skills. Pictured here is a student who receives the foundation’s support to access the needed services. She is proud of her progress, and likes showing off her owl cap signaling she is growing wiser every day! Her mother provides testament to her success and about how she and her daughter are giving back in gratitude.
“I’m so thankful for everything Turtle Wing does for me and my child. She has really blossomed in her academic and social skills…she loves coming to Hatch, and I love having a center in our rural area that can meet her needs for additional support educationally and financially through its community partnership with this incredible foundation. To show our appreciation to all those who donate to the mission of Turtle Wing Foundation, at her birthday party last year, we asked her friends to bring checks for Turtle Wing instead of gifts.”
