Rather than donate money without any personal involvement,I wanted to volunteer for a local charity that made a difference in individual children's lives. For the past 8 years I have been involved with ABC, both as a volunteer and donor. I have seen 1st hand how this organization has changed the lives of hundreds of children. It reaches children at their most vulnerable time,before they go to school. I believe that it is critical that these children receive this therapy at the earliest possible time.I have seen how ABC's techniques of play therapy have changed the lives of children who otherwise would have had no chance.I witnessed how an instructor was able to recognize how a child's behavior in play therapy led to a discovery of child abuse at home. Because of ABC this child was able to receive help in eliminating this abuse. In addition they train mental health professionals as well as family members so they can extend the reach to more children. Their weekly staff meetings with health care professionals and volunteers allow for exchange of experiences and techniques which help more children.The expertise and compassion that I witnessed made me a believer in this technique. I have tried to let others in WPB know about this wonderful service. Please help them to make a difference in more children's lives. Stan Winokur
