Dear Parents as Teachers,

Today is our oldest son’s 25th birthday! From 1986-1989 when we first lived in the St. Louis area, he and we received the benefits of Parents as Teachers. As a first-time mother, the program gave much peace of mind!

We’ve been saddened by the recent news stories of the budget cuts the state is imposing on your program and decided to make a donation to support one child as a way of saying thanks and paying back the benefits offered to us so long ago. We hope it helps and would urge others to do the same.

All the best,
Patty K.
