Unicorn’s Executive Director, Sharon Alexander expresses, “Board members play a very crucial role in the growth and direction of our organization.  1 of 6 children are labelled as damaged because 1 of 6 children are diagnosed with autism, ADHD, dyslexia and other neurodiversities.  This dynamic group will allow Unicorn Children’s Foundation to create an understanding in the community that differences can be a good thing and we are all more alike than different.” 

President Gregory Fried, elected for a 2nd term, adds, “The past year was amazing as we implemented the special needs system transformation plan, developed new relationships and cultivated long-term friendships.  I truly believe that the talent assembled for this upcoming year will continue to bring those in our community together and allow us to support great programs that will give these wonderful and amazing children an opportunity to have a voice in this world.”
