Expect A Miracle

Motivated by the struggles she endured as a single parent raising seven children, Carolyn Gable started this foundation to give struggling parents the opportunity to see their kids play organized sports, receive special tutoring, perform in their first music recital, and more. These programs bring tremendous joy and self-esteem to both children and their parents and can positively impact the community when more families are involved in learning and growing. www.expectamiraclefoundation.org/
