The children are our future. I want to help create hope for those who need a little extra help. 20 years inspired a $200 gift. So happy that it will be doubled.

"The work MountainStar does with vulnerable children and families and the results that they have achieved in prevention make me so proud to support this organization."
- Jennifer Mitchel, MD
I support Mountain Star because I believe working with young children has the greatest impact. You are helping them overcome obstacles before habits become ingrained and have to be unlearned.

I choose to support MountainStar Relief Nursery because I want to support a local agency devoted to strengthening families and preventing child abuse and neglect. I believe in and am inspired by their program which provides therapeutic classes for children integrated with home visits and individualized parent coaching. The services are no cost to the families and the program is not mandatory and it allows the parents to choose from a variety of services to fit their needs.
