Amy created a unique project called Northern Nevada Disability Resource Network. The need to combine resources for people with disabilities /health conditions and their families was her major concern. Amy’s son, Josiah was her primary inspiration of starting this project. My story is expressed through the eyes of my son who is an intellectually challenged young adult diagnosed with a rare chromosomal disorder while in his teens. Despite the efforts of locating services while he was an infant, we were limited to referrals through our insurance. While so many parents like myself, I was inspired to develop a resource network to help families.
