“There is no better job and fulfillment than to have the opportunity to work for families and children and support them through life’s ups and downs. You can’t replace that. Once you get a taste of it, you want to continue that feeling of knowing you’re helping others and investing in their futures. I am joined by a passionate, multi-disciplinary team of professionals that is here to serve families and children with compassion!” – Bobby Eklofe
