Our Luncheon, Awards and Special Needs Summit has been rescheduled due to COVID-19. Please save the date to join us on April 7, 2021.

Bryan’s House “Pathways to Inclusion” — Luncheon, Awards and Special Needs Summit is Chaired by Betty Regard.

Regard is a graduate of The Hockaday School, SMU, and has a Master’s degree in Counseling Education from the University of North Texas. She has worked as a counselor at local nonprofits and is very active in her community.

We are pleased to announce the 2020 Wisdom's Hope Awardees:

Community Award to Temple Emanu-El accepted in May 2021.

Pathways to Inclusion

The emcee-led discussion will feature a unique perspective…from a global leader panelist who is a mother of a child with special needs to a leader taking extraordinary measures to serve and hire those with special needs in the workplace. This is a must-attend event of the Spring Luncheon season!

The future is bright

Our goal is to raise $225,000 (net) to provide families with excellent and vital services in the coming year. As a fun element – all lunch attendees and participants are asked to wear metallic colors, as we embrace new technologies to provide pathways to inclusion.

Stay tuned for more information about the Bryan’s House “Pathways to Inclusion” Luncheon, Awards and Special Needs Summit that has been rescheduled to April 7, 2021.
