The REACh Families Outreach project was funded in part by the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD). TCDD awards funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: $9903 (75%) federal funds and $3340 (25%) non federal funds.

We are very grateful for their support in helping us accomplish our goals in reaching  out to more families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
