Your work spreading knowledge outside the choir is so important … So many of our societal ills lead right back to brain health. Thank you, NW Children’s Fund.

NWCF is filling a critical gap. It is able to bring together the various sectors that play a role in the welfare of children – teachers, counselors, therapists, law enforcement, parents, child welfare agencies, those from public health and government – in one room around one conversation. NWCF is developing change agents for collective impact.
