I recently had the extreme honor…

And Pleasure to speak at the National Convention of the Casey Family Programs – Project Head to Toe…in Hollywood, where our esteemed Galen presented 2 day earlier. 750 were in attendance – they were mostly foster kids that are aging out of the program along with alumni and Special Mentors that unselfishly give their time… Read more »

We can make…

Fun out of anything? You betcha…Whether is is jury duty, a long line, or in bumper to bumper traffic, you name it. Our thoughts are always free to go where ever we want them to go, and they don’t always have to be focused on our current situation. Dreaming and thinking about the last real… Read more »
