MOMS would like to send a special thank you to our wonderful volunteers as well as our summer interns, Melissa and Abbie, for their exceptional efforts and support!
Our summer volunteers worked hard helping us at our Santa Ana office with filing, sorting, organizing not to mention helping in our Resource Room.
Thank you, Interns!
