I and my husband are eternally grateful to you all at Devereux for taking such good care of our son, Byron, for those 7 years. He is living independently now and doing well, and I give Devereux all the credit. You guys gave him a second chance at life, and I will always love you for it. And you kept our family together by giving Byron the help he needed. I'll be donating to you until my last days!

I have nothing but great respect for the wonderful staff at Devereux.

We appreciate all that Devereux does for our daughter and we will continue our support.
