I first learned of TAPA through Morgan Brodwin, a family friend with special needs. Her mother, Lisa, would always comment on the joy TAPA brought to Morgan and her family. At this same time, I was exploring community service and volunteer opportunities in connection with my Bar Mitzvah. Lisa suggested that I volunteer for respite at TAPA and it became a life-changing experience.
In the two years since my Bar Mitzvah, I continued volunteering and this year, I became a TAPA intern. Working with children at TAPA is a joyful and wonderful experience that is difficult to describe. I’m so grateful that I learned about it.
Max has been with us at TAPA for over two years and joins us every Saturday for respite!
