What is Bright Beginnings?

Bright Beginnings is a nationally accredited child and family development center that provides education and family-stabilizing services to over 150 homeless infants, toddlers, and preschoolers every day. Bright Beginnings' safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate childcare allows its students to reach important childhood milestones and helps lift their parents out of homelessness.

JLW founded Bright Beginnings in 1990 and is dedicated to helping Bright Beginnings help more homeless children and their families.
