Nancy and Steve Hooley have been passionate supporters of The Children's Place for many years. Both have witnessed the commitment of staff to children in need. Through Nancy's role as a volunteer and a volunteer member of The Angel Board they understand the importance of the work of The Children's Place in the community but most importantly understand the impact of early intervention in the healing work of the agency.
We are honored to have them represent The Children's Place and are grateful for their commitment to young survivors of abuse and neglect in our community.
