Richie McFarland Children's Center Podcast by Molly Ewing published on 2020-12-11T06:21:19Z For my Girl Scout Gold Award Project I have created a series of podcasts, each one focusing on a different New Hampshire non-profit. I got the chance to interview representatives from each non-profit and they were able to tell me about the work their organization does for the community. The goal of the podcasts is to educate the public on the non-profit organizations that are helping the communities thrive. I want people to know about these organizations to be able to use them as a resource for them or their family but also I want the taxpayers of New Hampshire to learn about the non-profit organizations that receive state and town funding. I hope you enjoy the series and are able to learn about something you might never have known about. In this episode I talked to the Executive Director of Richie McFarland Children's Center, Peggy Small-Porter. Richie McFarland Children’s Center provides early childhood support programs to children ages 0-3 to help them reach their full developmental potential. Their goal is to help children with developmental delays become prepared to enter school and their programs include family-centered early support and services, pediatric therapy, and early learning groups. Peggy told me about the growth and history of the organization, the families they have helped and town and state funding aspects. Richie McFarland Children’s Center does great work in the community to deliver services to families in need and if you would like to learn more about the organization you can visit their website www.richiemcfarland.org.
