We Are Thankful
Thanksgiving is the time of year when we count our blessings. At MKSA, we have much to be thankful for:
-The families that trust us in providing services to their children; we are humbled are grateful for the faith you place in us.
-Our wonderful providers , for their dedication to each child and family, and for all of their tireless efforts.
-Our inspiring and kind colleagues , who help make our days productive and pleasant.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to making a difference in the life of a child. We are grateful that we are able to play a role in the journey of so many families. We wish you and your family a healthy, happy Thanksgiving full of many blessings.
