Esther B. Clark School Impact & Outcomes 2014-2015

“Because of depression and other mental health issues, our young son literally could not make it through a school day and no one seemed to know how to help him. CHC never said, ‘We don’t know what to do.’ Instead they said, ‘We’ll help you find answers.’”
