In the Spotlight: Camilla Hart!
We would like to extend a special thank you to Camilla Hart with Certified Emergency Training (C.E.T). She offers very affordable CPR/First Aid training to our kinship families IN THEIR HOMES! Understanding the difficulties some of our families face with transportation and childcare, this has been a tremendous blessing to Boost a Foster Family (who covers the cost of the training) and to our families.
Thank You Mesa Montessori!
Also a special shout out to the Mesa Montessori Education Center for their end of the school year donations of gift cards and locking tool boxes for medications. The tool boxes decorated by the students with paint and stickers are sure to bring plenty of smiles to the faces of the kinship families who receive them.
