    SHORT the Squirrel helps make reading a blast!

    SHORT the Squirrel helps make reading a blast!

    These ladies have a passion for making reading fun and improving literacy for the children in Alabama. 
    They informed us that literacy is a problem for children at all economic levels because of devices. It's not just lower-income children facing the issue. 

    They started by placing reading packets in the courtrooms for children to work on. But they're not stopping there. 
    They want to put these packets in any place where children have to 'wait' with their parents. 
    A perfect opportunity to encourage kids to read with fun packets!

    If we can understand mental illness, we can help - NAMI

    If we can understand mental illness, we can help - NAMI

    The families and members of NAMI Mobile can help.  They offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental illnesses and the treatment of mental illness.

    Mental illnesses are brain disorders that are biologically based medical problems. Untreated, they can cause severe disturbances in thinking, feeling and relating. This results in substantially diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. Mental illness can affect persons of any age and occur in any family. They are not caused by bad parenting and not evidence of weakness of character.
