A few words from our interns, staff and past parents…

GBS is an amazing therapy center. So many great things happen once you step foot in the building. The staff have amazing relationships with the clients, which makes for great outcomes and progress for these kiddos. The children that are involved with GBS make such great progress, and so quickly.

GBS is full of positive staff for the children there and they do everything they can to help each child grow.
