Childhood Literacy

“I really appreciate the support Lauren provided to our Parent Child Home Program for many years. She identified foundations that would be interested in our work and her grant proposals helped us get funding. When she wrote articles to promote the program, she interviewed several moms and she was always very sensitive. She got them to open up and tell their stories, which helped communicate what we were doing to our donors.”
