Our experiences, frustrations, road blocks and victories led us together to support families in navigating through the world of Brain Disorders.

We are looking for parents,community members and providers that would like to get more involved in Amazing Grace Advocacy.  We are expanding at a rapid rate and need volunteers, committee members and your GREAT ideas!  Contact Gwen Bartley if you would like to get involved!

Amazing Grace Advocacy would like to THANK our Local Leaders and Community Partners in collaborating to work on solutions for families raising children with Brain Disorders. Cabarrus County has launched a effort to address the gaps and needs of Mental Health in our County. Amazing Grace Advocacy will be representing the voices of the local families and sharing that: Every Life Has A Purpose.

Children diagnosed with Brain Disorders may learn, behave and communicate differently; however their dreams, goals and purpose are no less important than any other child.

Amazing Grace Advocacy works to empower families in achieving safe and nurturing environments for their children to grow, learn and transition into adulthood with purpose and sustainability.

We believe "Every Life Has a Purpose" with enabling all individuals to discover and enjoy their qualities through support and opportunity.
