“Our children are the most precious natural resource we have. Every day, cycles of poverty leave them stripped of the opportunity to improve their own lives. For every incredible story of a child who ‘beats the odds,’ there are innumerable stories of children who don’t. That statistical reality exists, regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum.”
What’s unique about YPI is the manner in which it works to break the cycle by embracing communities. It’s a wraparound approach, an everything approach. And the difference between having access to these services or not can mean the difference between breaking the cycle or reliving it. I’m pleased to serve on the board of this impactful organization and look forward to working with my colleagues to promote and advance YPI’s important work.”
