ONS Kitchens Making a Difference by Barb Keller

Dear ALCW Members,
HCS Family Services sponsored an eight week workshop on parenting skills.  The six moms involved in the program were awarded with the ALCW starter kitchens for attending all meetings and doing the weekly assignments.  I am fortunate to have been one of the parent mentors in this program and also a member of Assistance League.  What a thrill it was for me to experience the excitement displayed when the kitchens were delivered.

Barb Keller's mentee

Many of the moms commented on how delighted they were to have everything matched.  The toaster oven was a big hit with my mentee as now her daughters are trying new foods in the toaster oven.

The joy that these kitchens brought to these women made me proud to be an
Assistance League member.  I was delighted to be part of an organization that had given these women a feeling of accomplishment and self worth.
