“From the very beginning of our planning phase, SKED was right there with us. We were glad to know we could count on them to get our Somerset clinic off to a great start. With SKED’s assistance, we were able to open the clinic with necessary equipment and resources to help the kids of the Somerset area!”

“My experience working with SKED has been phenomenal. Everyone I have come in contact with has been very supportive and helpful. When beginning this journey, I had no idea where to start. I am beyond thankful Karen Minton was there to lead me in the right direction from the beginning. Karen and all her colleagues are wonderful. Working with SKED has been amazing, and I hope to continue with their support throughout my journey.”
