Review for Lucy Daniels Center , Cary, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

1 in 5 children will face an emotional challenge in their lifetime. Lucy Daniels Center (LDC) is one of the only places in the country that takes a truly holistic approach (i.e. classroom + home + other outside factors) to child mental health. LDC assesses children comprehensively and works with them and their families to ensure they are emotionally fulfilled and prepared for life. This thorough approach is evident in everything from their "orientations process" to their classrooms, which are fun worlds of exploration, with different "play areas" that nurture an individual's learning preferences. I was introduced to LDC through Cisco Systems's Civic Council, of which I am a member.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way a colleague's child becaome more emotionally prepared for "regular" school and the world.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the way it makes a transformative impact with children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

giving, caring, hard-working, tireless and commited to the individual needs of each child.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

develop an infrastrcuture that would allow it to support more children by more community outreach and enhanced collaboration across state and national borders.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
