The company has been named in honor of Mamie Grace who was born with Down syndrome. “Only on this earth for two and a half months, Mamie Grace taught us how to know joy, hardship, forgiveness, strength, understanding, and most of all love. We are determined to use her contagious spirit as a guide for helping the many families and educators that live or work with special needs persons,” states co-founder Kate Branson. Mamie Grace was the daughter of former WJLA-TV Consumer Reporter Elizabeth Manresa.
With the numbers of
special needs children drastically increasing, the team of Mamie Grace felt it
was important to provide information and resources for all disabilities in one
convenient location. In doing this, valuable time has been returned to
the parents and educators.
