What We Do

The mission of Turtle Wing Foundation is to help individuals with learning challenges in rural areas achieve their full potential by providing access to a shared network of emotional, educational, and therapeutic resources.

Turtle Wing was founded in 2011 in memory of Jackson Allan Hooper. Jack, who was diagnosed with high functioning Autism, died suddenly just prior to his 10th birthday. His passing sparked a fire within his family and community to help families who struggle with all learning differences.

Turtle Wing serves as a resource hub, not only connecting families who have children with learning challenges to the needed services in the area, but helping them afford those services, and partnering with local organizations and businesses to create new opportunities.

Turtle Wing is dedicated to changing lives. The Foundation’s goal is to help individuals “fly” academically, socially, and spiritually.

 

  • Academically: In programs such as academic tutoring, academic coaching, and learning labs, participants can grow in their ability to learn and progress in their education.

 

  • Socially: In programs such as social skills groups, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Aged-Out Programming, participants are provided the opportunity to create and maintain friendships, interact properly in social situations, and have the same enriching experiences as their peers.

 

  • Spiritually: All of Turtle Wing’s providers & programs allow the individuals participating to be fully comfortable in who they are, learn and grow from their hardships, and persevere towards the best quality of life possible. The Foundation strives to create a culture of acceptance within the communities it serves.

Last year, Turtle Wing Foundation provided direct financial aid to 323 individuals with learning challenges, allowing them to receive: 3,583 sessions of therapy, 553 sessions of tutoring, 306 sessions of social skills, and 787 sessions of afterschool programs, counseling, and family outings. Over 1,000 families were enrolled our Parent Support Network, and hundreds more were impacted by our education and advocacy efforts.

Turtle Wing Foundation relies on the generosity of others to help our individuals and families grow wings and fly.
