When you have a kid that has special needs you see life in a whole new light. Now at three, Corban can't talk or communicate like others his age.
So his parents signed him up at Erin is Hope.
"It's been an answer to our prayers," said Corban's mom Shawna Morris.
Erin is Hope is an intensive clinic that combines speech, writing, and physical therapies. The goal is to get Corban to talk.
Part of Corban's training includes learning to walk on a balance beam. Erin is Hope balances on a tightrope of its own, financially.
"We have tens of thousands of dollars tied up in delayed payments from insurance," said Judy Pollard the founder of the organization.
The group is also in dispute with Medicaid over payments, to the tune of more than $40,000.
"It's a struggle to meet the payroll," Pollard said.
No cash flow at a time when the number of families needing help is up. The clinic has done cutbacks and layoffs.
"Some things are just worth fighting for. We're not throwing in our towels for anyone," Pollard said.
Neither are parents. Corban's mom says the clinic has changed her son's life.
"He has a desire for language now. He understands more and is more responsive," Morris said.
She says more importantly it has given her family something you can't put a price tag on.
"It's given us hope for the future," said Morris.
