We are thrilled to announce a collaborative relationship with All Belong! All Belong is a nonprofit organization that works with Christ-centered schools across the country to support inclusion of students of all abilities. They currently partner with 6 schools in the Chicagoland area; many of their members use EANS or Title II to fund the partnership. You can learn more by visiting their website or watching this video on the Puzzle Piece Perspective. Their executive director, Elizabeth Dombrowski, would be happy to meet with you about their services. You can book a time directly on her calendar here, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
