First Meeting of the Connected Community Action Network

As the Chair of the Children’s Movement, Lawrence told the group that “Every child deserves a chance to fulfill his or her potential. The success to a child’s future is the right blending of health, education, nurturing and love.”

Sponsors included Helping People Succeed, Tykes & Teens, United Way of Martin County, Indian River State College, Children’s Services Council of Martin County, The Community Foundation Martin/St. Lucie, Barnes & Noble, and the Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce.
