Since 2013 Mary's Grace Incorporated has been a well-known Disability Advocacy group in North Carolina. What started out as a mom advocating for her own twins has become a community with the same passion. We are delighted to share it with you. We are committed to create programs that include all. We strive to connect people with others in their community to create spaces of belonging. We strive to connect with families and guide them through or walk alongside the challenging times.

IEP stands for Individual Education Plan. Mary's Grace assists families in creating the best plan for their child. Our team can serve as an advocate for the child and work with guardians, teachers, counselors and administrators to create a balanced plan that supports the child's learning environment. Our team consists of teachers and counselors.
