Info for Parents

All new participants benefit from a home visit with Shutaf’s Director of Programs, Marci Tirshwell or one of her staff, in order to understand your child’s needs in a holistic and inclusive manner. Program scholarship based on need is available for all our programs. Click here to read more about our programs. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
