ALLISON HUFF

Associate Board Member since: 2015

One of my favorite people that I am constantly inspired by is Brene Brown and she has quoted in her books that “a deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically and spiritually wired to love, to be loved and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to.” I love NPH because I feel that it provides the children with a home and a place to belong. It offers them a chance to feel loved by the volunteers and staff and by each other. It gives them the opportunity make those strong connections that help to facilitate a happy and healthy life.
