Review for Madonna Place, Inc., Norwich, CT, USA
Madonna Place provides the community with a much needed service. Their various programs and services work together to support and strengthen the family unit. The Fatherhood program provides much needed support and development of key skills to be a good dad. The nurturing family connections provides a support mechanism for first time parents. As a volunteer of the program above I got to experience how this service helped to provide a support line to parents of various social and economic demographics. In addition this organization helps fill some basic needs such as diapers and formula to families in need.
