Our Team

Our team members are making a difference every day

At Touchstone, we are blessed with a terrific team of caring individuals. These women (and a few men) see life-changing events every single day. Whether it's a child who finally masters toileting or a youngster finding the right word for the first time. There is joy and empowerment behind these accomplishments. And we are honored to facilitate that for the families we serve.
