About the isaac foundation
On February 8, 2007, Holly suffered a tremendous loss when her son Isaac, diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, unexpectedly passed away just 6 weeks short of celebrating his fourth birthday. Determined to turn her personal tragedy into an opportunity to help families similar to her own who were struggling with the hardships of having a loved one affected by autism, Holly channeled her grief and founded the ISAAC Foundation in July of 2007. This was no easy task as the year following Isaacs death Holly gave birth to her youngest son, Caleb, who was later diagnosed with high functioning autism.
In the years that followed, Holly never allowed personal hardship to derail her desire to provide services for families in need. The ISAAC Foundation provided financial support to hundreds of children in the region diagnosed with autism so that they could receive critical therapy interventions that were not covered by their insurance. She later broadened the scope of ISAAC Foundations mission to include emotional support programs for parents and siblings, educational programs for parents, teachers, employers, and regional first responders, and a weighted blanket program that generates over 200 weighted blankets and lap pads per year to individuals in need in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.
