I give in honor of my parent educator, Tricia, from Fort Zumwalt School District. She listened to my concerns regarding my son’s gross motor delays and made a referral to a low cost program to help my son have access to much needed physical therapy services.

I invest in our future with both time and treasure. I am a member of the youth ministry at my church and I support the work of Parents as Teachers because I literally want all children to learn, grow, and develop to realize their full potential. Children are our future and we need to help them be successful.
