This is an excellent program. I am very happy to see how much my daughter has grown with this program. My daughter feels safe and happy. Staff are always friendly and welcoming.

I just can’t say enough about how wonderful my Nutrition monitor is. She understand us providers and is always so helpful and patient with answering questions and making sure I understand all the requirements.

I am grateful for this program. I don’t know what I would do without it. Being a single mother is not easy and this program not only helps me keep a roof over my son’s head but also helps him receive the education he deserves. Thank you CDA.
