"Marlene, Melissa and their staff are simply the best at what they do...helping parents of kids with special needs to obtain help necessary to adequately care fo their children. They have helped numerous people I know as well as members of my own family. No conflict here...I've seen their effectiveness at navigating the maze of governmental programs and forms AND their intuitive compassion for the clients they have. They are extremely successful at obtaining the right care and help for the clients they have. I recommend the HIGHLY and without reservation. They simply are the best."

"Melissa and Marlene are the Dynamic Duo of advocacy! They are extremely knowledgable and have been there to help me with any questions that I have ranging from IHSS, Regional Center, IEP's, or even just navigating life in general having a child with Special Needs. They are both professional, accessible, and relatable on every level! I value their insight and feel lucky to have them as a part of our team.

"I highly recommend StandOut Advocates.   Melissa and Marlene are courteous, professional, patient and very understanding.  They know their business.  I would advise anybody with a special needs child to give them a call and not to try to go it alone!"
