Federation’s yearly Gala - On the Shoulders of Giants: 49 years of hard work

 It's hard to imagine that 49 years ago, a few parents sat around their kitchen table and initiated something that would go on to change the lives of so many children over five decades. I am incredibly honored to be a small part of that organization.

The Federation for Children with Special Needs provides access to information, resources, and support for all caregivers, including parents, grandparents, foster parents, guardians, and other designated representatives. ( from

 As one of the board members, I cannot express enough my appreciation for everyone on the board and the staff for their hard work in making things happen for these families.

Last weekend, the Federation hosted its Annual Gala with the theme "On the Shoulders of Giants," honoring the pioneers of the federation. These were the individuals who made it possible for our children today to have access and opportunities.

The Gala brings together people from all walks of life: parents, caregivers, support staff, various government agencies, and some wonderful souls who provide financial support to these programs, and most importantly, the families.

I donate Indian cooking lessons every year and have the privilege of meeting amazing families eager to learn the art of Indian cuisine. I reconnected with old friends, made new ones, and returned home with a renewed commitment to continue doing what I do for these families.
