It's About Scottish Rite & Community!

VMAP Subject Area #8, Philanthropy & Public Image, asks Valleys to conduct fundraising programs for Orient or Valley-special charities (i.e. scholarships, RiteCare, etc.). Is your Valley active in its support of its nearest RiteCare Childhood Language Program?  In this issue of the VMAP Working Tools, we highlight two successful RiteCare programs in Pasadena, CA, and Richmond, VA.
Pasadena RiteCare® Childhood Language Center

Pasadena RiteCare Childhood Language Center
The Pasadena RiteCare Childhood Language Center provides free therapy to pre-school children (ages 18 months up to 6 years) who are struggling to speak clearly or finding it difficult to understand words being said to them because of a speech-language delay or disorder. For help go to:
New waiting room at the Richmond RiteCare® center
The Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center in Richmond, VA
