We have an important mission of helping to prevent child abuse. We teach parents new skills, so they can become effective parents, using positive communication and coping strategies.

To help implement our mission, we have assembled a strong team of board members, who represent diversity and bring their time and expertise, along with networking connections to the organization.

We are most grateful to them.

Our Board of Directors includes leaders in business, finance, real estate, medicine and social services.
