The Learning Center Forever Home

Debbie Justice from The Learning Center was our guest speaker today.

Debbie has a Masters degree in Family Support Studies from Nova Southeastern University and is a Fellow of the Anderson School of Management at UCLA. She is the founder and Executive Director of The Learning Center for Families, a family support agency for vulnerable pregnant women and children ages birth to three. She is serving as adjunct staff in the Early Childhood Education Department at Dixie State College. Debbie is passionate about ‘building better babies and is actively involved in many local, state and national initiatives for developing and improving outcomes for disadvantaged children and their families.

And if that sounds kind of stiff, boring and pompous, You can use any of the following to substitute for the above:
  • Was a musician for 18 years in a rock and roll band and recorded an album in the 70s when they were made out of vinyl.
  • Lived in the interior of Mexico for 5 years where she studied silver smithing.
  • Adopted two ethnic children before little babies of color were considered a Hollywood Fashion Accessory.
  • Worked for 3 years in South Central Los Angeles as a home visitor for infants and toddlers with special needs and only got shot at once (but got massive amounts of parking tickets).
  • Was at Woodstock and Altamont!

On second thought, maybe we should stick with the boring pompous stuff.

Debbie presented information about the TLC Forever Home. It will cost $2.2 million and they are asking for room sponsors ranging from $20,000 up to $110,000. They are also selling namesake bricks for $250. A fundraising Valentine's Day dinner is scheduled at the Abbey Inn at $50 per plate. For more information see their website:
