Hunter's Threads began as a passion project on May 21, 2016. There were a series of events that led to starting this company. My son Hunter was born in 2013 and I had a very normal pregnancy and delivery. Throughout my journey of being a new mom, I started realizing that Hunter wasn't hitting the same milestones as other kids. As I looked for direction and support from family, friends and doctors, they would say what most people would say, "he's fine". I quickly realized, that it was up to me to do something about it. Throughout all the politics and bureaucracy of medical insurance and withholding resources, being referred out, and Hunter falling through the cracks on every end, Jody and I knew this journey wasn't going to be easy. Getting therapy is not an easy process.
Once Hunter turned 3 years old, his services ended and private speech, occupational and physical therapy cost from $90-$150 an hour per service. Each assessment was costing $375. A 6 month membership to clinics were averaging $10,000. There was no way that I would be able to afford 3 therapies a week, taking him to the appointments and still finding time to work full time, be available to my daughter Isla and conquer normal life stresses.
I quickly realized that there is a need here and I want to be the one to make it easier for families to get help. The goal of Hunter’s Threads is to form a community that is excited about therapy. A community of people to advocate for the brand, assist with procurement of kids clothing, volunteerism, community and having fun while doing it.
Hunter’s Threads is an online and brick and mortar store that sells used and new clothing. Hunter’s Threads is seeking partnerships, therapists, learning specialists, clinics, schools, day cares, businesses and anyone who is interested in making Hunter's Threads succeed. This is a new world for me.
Thank you for supporting Hunter's Threads.
