Mothers are superheroes.
Even in normal years, mothers go above and beyond in their roles as caregivers for their loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) including autism.
These last two years have not been normal by any means.
But moms everywhere have stepped up time and again, showing that they will do whatever it takes to care for their loved ones.
Mothers have attended our weekly webinars in droves.
Mothers have taken action on our vital advocacy alerts.
Mothers have made their voices heard with their elected officials, ensuring that their children’s needs are understood and prioritized.
These mothers and advocates – or “momvocates” – have adapted, accommodated, and gone above and beyond – not just these last two years, but every year.
The Arc of Massachusetts was founded by mothers (and fathers!) just like these.
Before Mother’s Day on Sunday, take the time to honor the incredible work of the mothers in your life with a gift.
