Thank you CHC Family for welcoming my daughter Julia as a volunteer this summer. It FOREVER changed her life and she can't stop talking about the wonderful staff and awesome kids. She so enjoyed working in the preschool room with Katie and a special shout out to my special sister Marissa Janiga who worked at the center this summer and took Jules every day with her. The experience was priceless and she even got me to come back to the school after all these years that have flown by since our brother Nathan passed away and it was great to talk about the "Old" days with Jan and Nancy...and the Cow Bingo and picnics on the farm. I am so blessed that my daughter got to be part of the school this summer and she is already planning to come back during the year. "Circle of Life"

I am very thankful for the loving and caring staff at CHC. My grandson Antonio Tallarico was very fortunate and blessed to have the care and education from CHC. This school was not only caring; they were like our second family. I will forever be grateful for their support and love that they gave to my grandson.
