Our Story

Our founder, Brandie Hazelett, established our company in 2021. Driven by a deep sense of responsibility and continuous dedication to special education, Brandie turned a crisis into an opportunity. When a previous employer faced a mental health crisis and abruptly closed operations, she did not let her students and staff face disruption and uncertainty. Utilizing a previously created LLC, she contacted the educational districts to take over services, ensuring the continuity of education and support for her students, thereby laying the foundation of what Red Line Advocacy is today.

Completely independent and distinct from the past company, Red Line Advocacy represents a triumph of resilience and dedication. Brandie and her team are excited to propel the organization onto the next phase of its growth, ingrained with the strong ethos of solving problems, learning, and growing together.

We champion individual learning styles for each child.
We create a nurturing environment where everyone feels welcome.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
