What People are Saying
“Our daughter Jessica has been a client of Surrey Place for over 20 years. Surrey Place has helped our family in many ways including having Jessica participate in a speech therapy program when she was 2 years old. Surrey Place through the DSO office were also instrumental in guiding us through the application process for passport funding, which Jessica received when she was 18 years old. The level of kindness, support and professionalism we have experienced over the years is what makes Surrey Place an important resource for us.” READ MOREDorlean R.
