The Julia Anne Kirsch Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to improving the lives of those with significant developmental disabilities and their families.

It was through Julia that her parents, Teri and Cliff, became aware of the real challenges and barriers that the disabled and their families face every day of their lives.
