Aisha van ter Sluis   Director of program and practice

Serving low-income children and families takes commitment to process, people, and a shared humanity. But it also takes systems and plans for action, an understanding of what steps need to be taken to reach an identified goal, and a practical, realistic, structured approach to moving the work forward. Organizing people and projects to get things done is my craft. Ensuring children and families are successful on their own terms, as seen and experienced in their own lives, is my calling.
