Founder and CEO Syrenthia Farris lives out the mission of POCWASN. At the age of 19, her 2 year old son Stephen was diagnosed with autism. She became a strong advocate and navigated through an endless maze of doctors, clinics and treatment centers. As 20 years of advocating and serving as the primary caregiver for her son she reached a breaking point. She became emotionally exhausted and had to enlist the support of close friends and family to rejuvenate and jump start her life. Her process was an endless and deliberate amount of self care. It was this experience that helped her to birth Parents of Children with All Special Needs (POCWASN). .
