"I wanted to do my internship with LSS Crisis Nursery because I knew it would be the perfect place to put my education into practice. Interning at LSS has been a great experience. I have learned a lot about families and children. It is great to see how thankful families are for the help they receive and rewarding to find parents accomplishing their goals."
- Valerie
