Our Story

Almost 30 years ago, our youngest child, Ryan, came into the world.  For the first three or four years he appeared to be developing normally, with no issues or concerns.  However, a standard test administered as Ryan entered preschool highlighted a number of developmental deficits.  Further testing revealed significant cognitive and intellectual deficits that would eventually impact Ryan’s ability to learn, make decisions, find and hold a job, and live independently. 

With the help of an amazing network of family, friends, teachers, and youth leaders Ryan graduated from high school, earned a black belt in Kempo karate, earned the rank of Eagle scout, is gainfully employed, and living as independently as possible.  He is our angel in every sense of the word, and his life has truly been an inspiration to all of those who know him.

We have experienced first-hand the challenge and blessing of supporting a special needs child into adulthood, and are excited to support United Angels in this important fund raising event.  Supporting special needs individuals and families does take a community, and we hope you will join us!



About The United Angels Foundation

United Angels Foundation (UAF) is a nonprofit, parent-to-parent support group for families of children with special needs (our Angels). UAF believes that the most effective way to support these children is by supporting the parents and guardians who are raising them. Our main goals at UAF are to provide interaction, education, and resources to our parents. We implement these goals through our newborn visits and packets, online chat forums, parent educational seminars, parent lunches, "Mom's Night Out", and youth and family activities. Funds raised from the Walk with Angels event will specifically go towards financing our educational seminars, activities (including Freedom at the Pool, Hee Haws, and our annual Christmas party, as well as age-related activities), and to administer our newborn and new member program. Please join us in advocating for all the angels in our community!
