2013 Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive Let's Get it RIGHT
The Harriet Ware Society

Greetings Summit attendees,
Hopefully you are enjoying the beautiful autumn weather.  Can you believe it's been five months since the Summit!  We are sure that everyone has been busy working to support babies and toddlers throughout Rhode Island.

We would like to invite you to join us for some more brainstorming and follow up on the work we started back in May.

Many folks indicated a need to discuss parent-child visitation for young children involved in our state's child welfare system. Based on this feedback, a small, time limited subcommittee has been formed to address this topic.
The first meeting will take place on Tuesday November 5, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. -11:30 a.m. at the Providence Children's Museum located at 100 South St, Providence, RI 02903.
If you are interested in participating please contact:
Dana Mullen, Assistant Vice President of Programs at Children's Friend 
Heidi Brinig, Families Together Director, Providence Children's Museum
