Albany, GA (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
February 25, 2014 marks an important milestone for Megan’s House. This month is the 10 year anniversary of providing respite care to children and families in Southern Georgia. Celebrating this achievement is exciting and rewarding! As a result of creating a unique solution for families who have children living with developmental disabilities, many lives have been touched and quality respite care has been provided to numerous families in desperate need of a break. Last year, 51 children were served at the three locations and 415 days of respite care were provided for these special families. However, this service has no permanent, secure source of funding. Easter Seals is thankful for the community support which has made this program possible and is excited for what the next ten years will hold for Megan’s House.
