On Sunday, January 23 at 10 pm, The Children’s Room will be guests on the Jordan Rich radio show. We have been invited by the Lenny Zakim Fund, one of our supporters. Together with th Louis D. Brown Peace Institute we will be telling an audience in 38 states and Canada about the mission of The Children’s Room and how we help grieving families. We will also highlight an upcoming collaboration with the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute to help families affected by homicide.
We are thrilled to have this opportunity to spend an hour with these great folks talking about how to help families in crisis. This show will be available on our website for listening a week or so afterwards.
About the Lenny Zakim Fund
The mission of The Lenny Zakim Fund is to identify, listen to, support and connect grassroots community organizations and programs operating “below the radar screen” of large charitable groups and government grants. The Lenny Zakim Fund provides assistance to those who demonstrate the will and potential to make a difference, but lack the necessary resources. As a reflection of Lenny Zakim’s personal ideals, The Fund is especially interested in supporting groups involved in constructive coalition building across race, religious and ethnic lines.
About the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute
The mission of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute is to create and support an environment where families can live in Peace and Unity. The Goals and Objectives are three fold:
(1.) Schools: To develop programs and activities that teach and instill the values of peace and enrich the lives of young people.

(3.) Community: To inform and educate the public about the causes and the consequences of violence on the individual, the family and the community, while transforming the community into an environment where young people are valued by adults and by their peers the for their peacemaking efforts.
