Rainbows' Mom Now a Direct Support Professional

From Receiving to Giving Services

An educator for Goddard School District for more than 18 years, Amie Ozbun came to Rainbows with experience working with children with special needs. She and her family also received services when their daughters were first born.

“Rainbows has a special place in my heart,” said Amie. “The therapist who came to our home when my daughter was young helped both of us so much.” The family received Infant/Toddler Services early intervention therapies for three years with their first child, then when their second daughter was misdiagnosed with a special need, the therapist was a comforting supporter.

Amie’s experiences with Rainbows made becoming a Direct Support Professional during the summer an easy choice. She works part time providing in-home care for a school-age child with special needs. She enjoyed getting him out into the community and giving him a safe space to have fun and be himself. “It made my day to have him be excited when I showed up,” said Amie. “He knew we were going to do something fun, and we did.”

Tiffany Graf, Family Support Services Coordinators says, “Amie has been a great addition to the FSS team, she is really good with the kids. She likes to make sure they have a good time.”

Married to a racecar driver, Amie spends a lot of time at the racetrack with her family including her husband and 3 daughters. They love camping, boating, and doing crafts – as long as she doesn’t have to clean up!
