BENEFITING: Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood
As many of you know, I am on the board of Lucy Daniels Center - the largest provider of mental and emotional health services for kids in the Triangle region of North Carolina.
The LDC helps kids "get back to happy" from the inside out. We have one of the country's few therapeutic preschool programs and in August 2013, we opened the first STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) elementary school in the state of North Carolina, specifically for children with emotional and mental health challenges.
We are moving full STEAM ahead (pun intended) on helping as many children as possible have a happy, emotionally health start in life. Please join me in getting kids back to happy, one day at a time!
What's the money for, you may ask? Please know that 90% of all our kids (and their families) receive financial support, with approximately 16% paying absolutely nothing for their care and education. At the same time, we have long waiting lists for all our services. Your contribution ensures we treat as many children as possible, regardless of their ability to pay.
