Why Plan?

To have a BIG say in what happens to yourself, your loved ones, and your assets, when you cannot.

If you don't plan ... other people get to decide:

  • Probate Court Judge
  • People you don't know or don't want
  • Your state legislature

Ensure that your disabled person will be safe and provided for no matter what happens in the future.

What is Estate Planning? Why Do I Need to Worry about this Now?

Watch this brief introduction with Annette Hines to learn more about what Estate Planning is and why it is so essential for special needs families.

Founder's Story ~Annette M. Hines

I always tell people that first and foremost, I am a mother of two daughters, one of whom passed away from mitochondrial disease in 2013. This deep, personal understanding of special needs fuels my passion for quality special needs planning and advocacy. My daughter Elizabeth was profoundly impacted by her healthcare needs and disabilities, and I share about my family's experiences with her journey through this course and in my memoir, Butterflies and Second Chances to provide you with hope and consolation that you are not alone. 

In addition, I have over twenty years of experience as an attorney and advocate in the areas of Special Needs, Elder Law, and Estate Planning. I oversee two organizations in my home state of Massachusetts, but work with families nationwide and have extensive experience with federal services. I'm also the host of the weekly Parenting Impossible – The Special Needs Survival Podcast.

I'm so glad you're here!
