Vivienne: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Coined by 16th century poet John Donne, the expression “No man is an island entire of itself” can well refer to foster care, or any one of our programs. Though distinct entities, our programs are tightly connected and work closely together to achieve the best possible outcomes for each and every child that we care for.
