Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Parents can use this holiday to talk to children about the importance of giving back and teach social-emotional learning concepts like gratitude and empathy.
At our Congressional Champions Reception, leaders of Healthy Families America and Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) presented awards to two senators and two representatives who have taken the fight for home visiting to heart.
Our 45th Anniversary Celebration was the perfect time to celebrate Kappa Delta. Our founder, Donna J. Stone, was herself a KD sister of the Lambda chapter at Northwestern University. Donna founded Prevent Child Abuse America in 1972. Less than ten years later, in 1981, her sorority selected our organization as one of their official national philanthropies. Since that time, the dedicated sisters of KD have raised nearly $22 million dollars for our organization and our chapter network.
