Our Board of Directors


Our Board is unique and critical to our mission and growth.

The majority of our board members were chosen not only for their own qualifications but for what his/her child brings to our nonprofit as well. We chose strong parents with unique children who each bring something incredible to the spirit and growth of our nonprofit organization. Our entire nonprofit grew from the unique but simple relationship between a child and an elder. We believe it is critical to the vision, mission and trajectory of this organization to have a "Kid Board" to continually remind the adults of their perspective, to offer ideas and creativity, and to help us think outside the box.
