This week on Helping Hand we have a returning guest: PACT - Parents and Children Together. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Dr. Marie Vorsino, Vice President of Intervention Programs, and Ryan Kusumoto, President & CEO. The Family service agency was founded in 1968, and offers 17 programs across the state in the areas of early childhood education, domestic violence prevention and treatment, child abuse and neglect prevention and treatment, positive youth development, community and economic development, and mental health support.

Helping Hand airs Fridays on HPR1 stations during our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then can be found online here. Each week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that supports people with disabilities and others among the most vulnerable.
