[Mary Anne] Elevations was founded because too many children with special needs who could be helped by therapy were falling through the cracks. [Brian] We are an intervention, essentially, a financial intervention so that families can actually get all the therapeutic services they need for their children. [Mary Anne] These therapies cost a lot of money. Insurance doesn't cover a lot of things so the family has to decide, okay, do I get my child what they need or do I put food on the table? And so we just found that unacceptable and we needed to make a change. [Mary Anne] We are 100% community funded. We are the communities hands. It's people that care that come together and make a difference and then we just get to distribute it. 00:00:01:00 00:00:04:09 [Mary Anne] Elevations was founded 00:00:04:09 00:00:08:02 because too many children|with special needs 00:00:08:02 00:00:10:06 who could be helped by therapy 00:00:13:18 00:00:15:20 [Brian]We are an intervention, essentially, 00:00:15:20 00:00:17:00 a financial intervention 00:00:17:00 00:00:18:08 so that families 00:00:18:08 00:00:21:07 can actually get all|the therapeutic services 00:00:21:07 00:00:22:16 they need for their children. 00:00:22:16 00:00:25:01 [Mary Anne] These therapies cost a lot of money. 00:00:25:01 00:00:27:03 [Mom] Ready to go? 00:00:27:03 00:00:29:17 Insurance doesn't cover a lot of things 00:00:29:17 00:00:31:18 so the family has to decide, okay, 00:00:31:18 00:00:34:06 do I get my child what they need 00:00:34:06 00:00:36:01 or do I put food on the table? 00:00:36:01 00:00:38:09 And so we just found that unacceptable 00:00:38:09 00:00:40:14 and we needed to make a change. 00:00:42:17 00:00:45:10 We are 100% community funded. 00:00:45:10 00:00:47:15 We are the communities hands. 00:00:47:15 00:00:49:05 And we all have different|people in front of us. 00:00:49:05 00:00:52:03 It's people that care that come together 00:00:52:03 00:00:55:01 and make a difference 00:00:55:01 00:00:57:00 and then we just get to distribute it.
