Our volunteers play, sing, read, and lead fun activities with kids while moms have the opportunity to discuss parenting and exchange tips.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
We invest grant dollars to support AHOB's rental costs for program space, books and classroom materials and supplies, and cultural experiences/field trips for children and youth.
Training And Consulting
We have worked with AHOB to find diverse revenue streams and connect to potential board members.
