Ampersand Families is important to me because when the work we do at the Crisis Nursery does not keep a child out of the child welfare system, Ampersand Families fulfills the promise of returning that child to a family. This is important to me from the standpoint of reducing the cost to society but even more so, from a human standpoint.
