I was introduced to Bright Beginnings through my involvement with the Junior League of Washington (JLW). As a JLW member, I volunteer throughout the year to support Bright Beginnings programming.
It's such a joy to visit the colorful center where Bright Beginnings provides safe, nurturing, developmentally-appropriate childcare for homeless infants, toddlers and preschoolers while helping their parents end their homelessness. The teachers are playful, kind and attentive. The children are smart, creative and adorable. The work that Bright Beginnings does in the community is critical. The Bright Beginnings 5K - our largest annual fundraiser - helps keep the program going and growing. With your support, we can reach more children in their earliest years and help more families get on their feet and out of poverty.
