I think it is very important that everyone, regardless of income, have access to high quality care for mental health concerns. I raise funds to assure that even the poorest in our communities can get the superior care that Family Service therapists provide.

I feel honored to be involved with an organization that makes such a significant contribution to the lives of the children and families it serves. Something as routine as helping a child to develop good study habits can last a lifetime.
