Thank You!

A new year for United 4 Children means we ended the last with our Annual Campaign.  The Annual Campaign always gives us a boost of energy to enter a New Year motivated and refreshed to achieve our mission of improving the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of our children.

United 4 Children was contacted by a child care center in reference to a 2 year old child that is not able to use his words. The teachers say although Steven makes noises he points but doesn't speak.
