From an attendee at the 2018 CCF conference: 
"I had the best time at the Conference! I met great people and learned so much helping me to see underneath the surface of my son. Living in an area where resources are slim to none, makes it a challenge to support his education and believe he had a future. Every session was awesome; filled with information to help me navigate thru the system and contacts willingly offering support and understanding. Not enough words to express how enlightening and special this conference meant to me!!! Thank you to every person involved! From the planning and organizing to the speakers and resource booths. Everyone was wonderful!!!"
