I have a Monroe Harding tshirt. Whenver I where it in the community, random people come up to me and ask how I'm involved. Several times, I have had people tell me stories of how they had been in foster care and needed support from the broader community or how they had family & friends that had been helped by Monroe Harding. That is a legacy I want to support!

"Love is work made visible" is a quote from 'The Prophet' by Gibran and although written long ago, it is stiill true today. Monroe-Harding exemplifies love in action. The young people who are sometimes angry and always hurting, can find a staff that is not only skilled but compassionate and caring. I know this because one of the staff is a personal friend and I see his dedication and compassion, his meticulous attention to detail and his willingness to 'go the extra mile' for both the youth in his care and for the staff with whom he works. He is one of many who work tirelessly to provide quality care at Monroe-Harding.

Monroe Harding has been a successful program for many years and continues to serve children and families daily. Their ability to work with children from the child welfare system and to help children and families move forward is amazing.

Monroe Harding truly does what they say they do- change young people's lives. This place gives children and youth in state's custody the chance for a better life. Nashville has many non-profits, but this one has been around for so long and day in and day out they continue to do all they can to help these youth!

Many times challenging children are given up on, but with Monroe Harding many of these children have been given the opportunity to change their lives in a positive way and have went on to be successful young adults! I am an active foster parent through Monroe Harding. The concern and love they show each and every child that is placed through them is amazing. I recommend them to anyone who shows an interest in foster care. They are staffed with great people and have many wonderful programs. Supporting the work of Monroe Harding's programs is helping the communities around you because the children that come through their programs are the leaders of our future!
