The Ommert Family

We found out we were having a baby with Down Syndrome when I was 13 weeks pregnant through genetic testing, and decided to go to the annual DS Buddy Walk in Denver a few weeks later to see other DS kids and get information at the event. It was there my Mom came across The Rise School's booth and insisted we go talk to them after the walk. We thank my Mom every single day for referring us that day.

Words simply cannot express the impact The Rise program has had on our son JD in just the first 2 years of his life!

At first, I was so nervous, not knowing what to expect and wondering if I was doing the right thing, but just a few days after starting his first day at Rise, I knew JD was in the right place no questions asked.

JD has excelled beyond belief with so many skills he never would have been able to get anywhere else! I mean it. This school is truly a hidden gem and I hope one day they can replicate their program throughout Denver metro area.

For now though, this organization is worthy of any and all financial support we can give them to help keep them being successful in doing what they do best!

I sincerely hope you will join me in making a donation this giving season! No amount is too small or too big :-) Thank you Rise School for all that you do to help our very special kids shine! ←Back to Support Rise
