Professional with expertise in this field
I have had the privilege of seeing first hand the care Palmer Home provides to the kids' they serve. As the executive director of On River Time, we partner with Palmer Home to provide life-affirming programming to the teens in their care. These are beautiful, resilient children. They are a joy to be around. Though they come from difficult backgrounds, at Palmer Home they are surrounded by people who care, who teach them about God's love, and provide a loving and supportive environment for them to flourish. It is a privilege for us to support the incredible work they do.
