Ady’s Army helps families tackle the challenges of having a child with autism
“All these services are branches of Ady’s Army, really are things that we either researched, hoped for, or struggled with – whether it was insurance or whether it was services not available – and that’s really what it came about. So, our eyes were really like, ‘OK, well, what’s been difficult in our journey?’ … and that’s where the branches came about for Ady’s Army.”
Alabama Care anchor Lane Hagan, executive director of Libby’s Friends, chats with Chrissy and Brian Schubert about their daughter Ady and the journey and experiences that led to the founding of Ady’s Army, a nonprofit organization which works to give families of autistic children peace of mind, financial resources, and answers to their questions.
