In the iconic 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz, the Tin Man character traveled to The Emerald City with Dorothy because he believed he needed a heart from The Wizard. In reality. he had the biggest heart all along. The Tin Man was humble, loving, caring and compassionate.
Behind every person in the limelight are usually many who make the road easier, and do a great amount of the work, give of themselves, their time, and/or their gifts.
These unsung heroes are the heart of our community, and they are continually the heart of how The Carousel Center is able to offer the healing services to the child victims of abuse/neglect and maltreatment, who utilize our Child Advocacy Center each year.
