Office Decorating Contest

This years office decorating contest involved more than just crafts and decorated lobbies. It involved so much more than that... it was the preschool students who made the dolls, staff members that took this awareness to heart, supervisors who truly care and participated with their staff, child care providers who got involved in the movement, mental health providers whose families and their children are excited and proud to see their work of art, youth and parents who called to see where they may volunteer to make a difference in this subject, and the public who commented on the beautiful efforts people put in these details shining resilient light upon this reality of what happens.

I sincerely hope that with this messages more people are courageous enough to talk about these topics, and make the next step, which is to report it and get help.
