What Our Participants and Their Families Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let them do the talking!

“I love the Exceptional Foundation because it’s like a home away from home, I have so many friends there, the staff is wonderful… If there was no Exceptional Foundation it would be a sad world and there wouldn’t be much to do.”

Jeff M.

EFWTN Participant

“Words cannot express the love I have for EFWTN. With me, it’s all about trust. My son is autistic and very easily persuaded. I used to always keep him close because people can be cruel. EFWTN is the only place in the world where he can go without me and I am perfectly comfortable. I love EFWTN!”

Brenda Y.

Mother of EFWTN Participant Marviel

“Roseanne loves to leave our house to mix and mingle. I love that EFWTN is a safe place for me to send her. I appreciate Roseanne being treated like everyone else, not treated based on a disability but treated right.”

Maxine S.

Aunt of Participant Roseanne
