Progin Foundation

Perkins (now RFK Community Alliance) saved our family. Our son, Robby, required 24/7 support which became an overwhelming burden on our family. Perkins provided the residential and homelike services which we felt would best support Robby and allow him to grow and thrive. Thank you so much.

It’s important to ask how we can make a difference in their lives, so they can then go out and make a difference themselves.
