Having spent the last 20 years of her career as the executive director of 3 children’s museums, including the current president and CEO of the DuPage Children’s Museum, Sarah Orleans has seen first-hand the power of the parent-child learning partnership. Through her role with the DuPage Children’s Museum, she was introduced to Project HELP as the museum partnered with us to support parents as they navigate these critical first years of a child’s life.
“New to Illinois, I have been looking for an opportunity to serve on a board of a non-profit dedicated to supporting families in our region,” Sarah noted. “Project HELP met all my criteria: exceptional staff; strong leadership; and a research-based program with positive results and data driven outcomes.”
Sarah is also involved in our parent mentoring program. She has noted that it is a great fit for her and she is able to see the results of her volunteer efforts on a weekly basis. “I am very grateful to be a part of this organization and look forward to sharing my skills in finance, organizational and fund development, as well as strategic planning, to my new role as Board Member.”
