Acting on this conviction, the Foundation developed the Children and Family Fellowship, a 20-month executive leadership program. This results-driven leadership program nurtures a unique cadre of professionals willing and able to do the hard and necessary work of improving outcomes for children and families. This reflective report tells their story.
