Jamie and Daryl Swanson felt alone and abandoned after their three children were diagnosed with special needs. Although they felt ostracized by family, friends and society, they remained faithful and kept praying for a sign or a light at end of the tunnel. It came in the way of food. All of their children have special dietary needs, and they often struggled to afford to feed them nutritious food. They realized they were not alone in this fight so they partnered with the Trooper Brinkerhoff Foundation to create a food distribution ministry to give our special needs community nutritious food at no cost! They have grown their ministry to host events where special needs family can feel safe, understood and loved as well.
