“I learned of MCHC through my work at the Chester County Fund for Women and Girls. I was very impressed with the work MCHC does, and after visiting the Family Center became completely hooked on the organization. I especially liked the outreach work the Family Center does to promote babies and toddlers hitting their developmental milestones in a timely fashion.”
