In addition to in-depth evaluation and intervention provision, our staff members are community citizens integrated within our area. Many serve on leadership boards in schools, churches, civic and social organizations. Additionally, our patient’s families are well-integrated into our community and are our strongest support network for each other. Whether standing in line at the grocery store or visiting with a neighbor at a birthday party, parents often share their experience with others. Over the years, our families have been our single biggest source of referrals.
Milestones is very proud to direct families to The Capable Kids Foundation, envisioned and founded by some of Milestones staff-past and present, when they recognized a need for social programs for medically involved children. This program has grown immensely to service the entire Rio Grande Valley with both upper and lower RGV Chapters. Capable Kids is an independent local charity that focuses on improving the quality of life for children with special needs. Their programs include “Champions League Sports” adaptive sports leagues and AWARE-RGV advocacy and parents support program, as well as social programs for children to make friends and practice their social skills.
