Vickey's son Darin was born with severe autism. She struggled to find caretakers for her son as he grew older and became more difficult to manage.
When Vickey found out that Good Neighbor was coming to her area, it was a blessing to her family. She knew that her son would finally have a good place to live with his own bedroom, bathroom, and grounds to roam around.
“It felt like winning the lottery,” Vickey says.
The Southwest Virginia project has helped many families get the support they need to live a comfortable life.
“This process has not been easy for us parents but it’s been a blessing and such a load off of our shoulders. Darin is so happy here.”
Vickey is one of many heroes we meet at Good Neighbor.
