  1. I have worked for several decades to convince people that children in the juvenile justice system need family services among other things. Prevention involves building strong, healthy families. I have a following and would like to support your org. I was also just asked to become a member of the Sandy Hook promise Advisory Board. Are there things we can do to help promote your ideas?
    Sincerely,
    Dr. Kathy

  2. KARA,

    I am a writer and former educator looking to volunteer my services as a researcher, writer, and social media content creator. I have had the pleasure of educating at risk youth and would love to offer any of my skills to improve the lives of abused and neglected children.

    Please contact me if you need any of these services.

    Thank you,
    Sean Hedden
