SUSAN L. TAYLOR, Founder and CEO National CARES Mentoring Movement 

I often remind people that this is not the roughest side of the mountain we have traversed. And like our foreparents who envisioned our success, we are holding fast to big dreams for our children and community. At CARES we are planning carefully and strategically—while moving with all deliberate speed for the sake of our young. The village is on fire! We privileged, able ones are the healing waters our struggling children and families must have to succeed.”
