Santa Comes to Beverly Hospital

Since 1996, The Friends of Beverly Hospital have proudly supported the Connecting Young Moms program.  This hospital-based program provides comprehensive pre-and post-natal programs to young women who have limited resources, and in many cases, also lack social and emotional support.  They come to the program having experienced many of the challenges that poverty and young parenthood bear.  In addition to the financial support, The Friends provide these young women with warmth and caring that truly nurtures them as they learn to nurture their babies. 

Every year the Friends of Beverly Hospital host a Holiday Party for the
Moms and children in the "Connecting Young Moms" program at Beverly Hospital.
I have been a Board Member of the Friends of Beverly Hospital for two years, but have been
asked to photograph it for 5 years.  I have been Honored!!
 (respecting the privacy of the moms and children in the program, I do not post any of their photos)

Massachusetts State Representative, Ted Speliotis and Granddaughter came to the party
