Make a Difference

You can make a difference in the lives of our county's children.

Research in recent years has proven what parents have always know: that a child starts learning at birth. Community agencies such as yours are there to help make this as strong a community as possible. And it all begins with the very young. One way or another, each agency in our community affects the lives of our young ones. It's in all of our best interests for each child to grow to be well-adjusted, well-educated and productive. That process doesn't start with kindergarten. It starts at birth.
