Chief Development Officer
I believe every child deserves the chance to grow up free from abuse and neglect. I believe all parents need help. I believe no family is perfect. I believe we all have the responsibility as members of communities large and small to give help to the helpless, provide hope to the hopeless, and wrap our arms around those standing alone in this world.
