“My wife and I discovered our son had autism in Fall of 2018. This drove us to learn as much as possible about autism so we could be more effective parents. I also started looking for ways to leverage my professional skills to contribute more broadly to this cause, which led me to Birch Family Services. Birch is already having a strong impact in the NYC community, thanks to its experienced leadership team, committed Board of Directors, and dedicated and expert staff. I feel fortunate to be part of this community.”
