MCHC has served Chester County's women and children for 20 years. It was led by Pam Bryer, an excellent leader and fund raiser for those 20 years, and is now entering a new era with a brand new CEO. MCHC makes excellent use of its donors contributions with staff who are efficient, bilingual and so very dedicated to their clients. Let's honor Pam with this award.

MCHC is all about families, especially espectant moms and babies. I am a past board member, past president and past treasurer, but now operate on an advisory board/committee. MCHC is committed to healthy children, beginning in utero, and expecting healthy birth weights. They have made a difference in many lives of many families. Unhealthy babies result in a child who could have development issues and possibly problems for a lifetime. Those who have prenatal care take it for granted, but there are many people out there without it, and that shouldn't be a reality to anyone in the United States of America.

Statistics we have compiled show that women in our program have a very large percentage of healthy weight babies. The family center is another program that gets young children ready for school. It has been very beneficial for these families in school readiness.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of anything I would change within the organization.
