From Our Parents

“You all have given me the greatest thing any mother could ever ask for - a hug."

-Angie, Hunter’s Mom

“ChildServe gave Lucas his voice. Without ChildServe and the therapy he has received, he would not be talking. There are not enough words to express our gratitude.”

– Susan, Lucas’ Mom

"I feel so grateful for the relationships we built at ChildServe. They care for a child medically, but it's beyond that. The staff care for the child as a whole person and the whole family."

– Buffy, Hugh’s Mom
