I am so very sorry for your loss.My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.
Lisa worked with me in New York beginning in 2001 and was the sole force behind starting the Family Support movement in this county. She broke a trail to help all families with children who have emotional and behavioral challenges. The movement has survived and thrived! Thank you Lisa.
