“I’ve worked in many daycares over the years, but the minute I walked in to Sammy’s House, I felt very different. I was a little scared, but soon I was working with wonderful kids and an awesome staff. I always feel like when I’m here I make a small difference in all the small and big lives here. I love all of the people and kids that make Sammy’s house what it is.
