ZERO TO THREE is very inspirational in reminding me that I’m not alone, my team is not alone, our city is not alone, but we are in a group of international people that help inspire us and keep us honest and help us in our pursuit of helping families.” – Audra Miller, MS, LPC, IECMH-E®

This is someone’s heart they are dropping off to us, and they are expecting us to care for that child as if they were our own. It’s completely changed the way I view my job and the children in my field.” – Masele Navarro, Education Coordinator

It really helps practitioners and professionals engage in conversations with policymakers and power brokers around ‘What about the baby,’ ‘What about the families,’ and ‘How can we serve them better.” – Brandy Fox, LCSW, IECMH-E®
