The Importance of Play in the Life of a Homeless Child

When a child is displaced, their world is suddenly turned upside down. Familiar surroundings and faces are gone which can lead to feelings of fear and insecurity.

Two Words: Community Action

Dreams are for bedrooms and bar stools, as I like to say. Working in social services means community and action.

Being a part of Gateway Community Action Partnership for 20 years has provided life lessons and given me opportunities to put career skills to practical use daily to benefit individuals and families who came to us for help.
