I’m the Founder and President of NESS Cares, Inc. I was inspired to create NESS Cares as I realized our clients of NESS Behavior Consulting and the community had an increase need of direct support through the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

My team and I have listened to the voices of the ASD/Autism community and took initiative to create care packages of essential needs for families.

 

As we overcome the pandemic our work still continues. NESS Cares, in addition to the care packages, now offers a variety of products for everyday life including: sensory kits, ABA tools, apparel and home/office goods.
