Katie Russo, Center Director

""I love when we have a child as an Infant and they stay with us until the age of eleven and when they come back to visit us as a young adult. I find it is truly the most rewarding experience when they come and say thank you for making a difference in my life. I am very passionate about what I do and value each and every day I am given to make a difference in the life of a child.""
