“My daughter has a lot of medical and behavior problems but, as a single mother with no resources, I did not know where to turn. I met a social worker who directed me to the Lourie Center which provided free services for my daughter and for me. She is doing really well, and I know I am a better parent to her. Our future looks a lot brighter.”
