Donate to Children's Futures
For close to 16 years, I worked at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in Princeton NJ. I had a great job and a great organizational mission to pursue- improving the health and health care of all Americans. During the better part of the last two decades, I was privileged to work on some of the foundation’s largest ever community-based programs aimed at improving the lives of vulnerable children. Having grown up in a poor and rough neighborhood in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, PA, I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to help children with whom I closely identified.
Then, in 2006 I decided to leave RWJF to come to Trenton, NJ and join Children’s Futures, which is devoted to improving the health and well-being of disadvantaged children. In doing so, I brought with me a core belief that I developed over my years spent at the Johnson Foundation. My belief is that people with diverse job experiences and skills are needed in much greater numbers in struggling cities to help them meet basic health and welfare needs of families.
Children’s Futures has worked hard over the years to attract and retain talented people, while remaining lean and tight. But we cannot fulfill our mission without resources. That’s why I am asking everyone reading this message to donate $5, $20, $50, or whatever, to help us help children in need.
