As a PLI participant I gained a deeper appreciation for many of the complex challenges facing communities throughout Nassau County, including my own. At times the problems we face seemed overwhelming. However, by learning how to more effectively use my own strengths and the strengths which already exist in my community, I am now working with others to make our community more caring and inclusive. The support I received from PLI staff and especially my fellow classmates has been invaluable.

The Child Care Council of Nassau's Farm to Preschool program is one of the most innovative programs I have ever seen. Farm to Preschool is stemming the tide of childhood obesity!
