"The best thing about bringing Alex there was seeing how comfortable he was in the environment where everyone was just like him.  He immediately made friends.  He loved the activities, karaoke, and air hockey.  You really welcomed him in and he loved every minute."  -Alex's mother, Christina 


"The Exceptional Foundation is a gift to the Charlotte community and to my sister, Tasha.  The programming there has been a perfect way for her to have peer connections and to have fun.  We feel blessed to have found such a wonderful organization in the Charlotte community.  TEF rocks!"  -Tasha's sister, Shana

"When my son finished high school, I as a single mother, felt like my world collapsed because despite having attended for many years the CMS Transition Fair, I could not find the right place for my son to attend while I worked.  But the wait was worth it and now I feel blessed to have found TEFC in October because my child is safe and surrounded by wonderful people.  He has told me about trips to supermarkets, airport, library, bowling, gardens, different parks, danse classes "salsa", cooking, music, yoga, etc.  and that makes me so happy." - David's mother, Maria
