“We have to ensure that this generation of babies, young children, and young families come out of this time of pandemic healthy and resilient – that we don’t have a damaged generation. Secure Beginnings is the lifeline for that. Investing in young families right now is investing in our future in a completely direct way. That’s why we give.”
– Caryn Bosson, Donor
