COFI brings out the leader within

Donna, a long-time resident of Englewood, Chicago, didn’t always think of herself as a leader. When she attended a COFI parent leadership training at her child’s school, she didn’t think anything much would come out of it. Donna had too much to worry about at home and just wanted to lay low. But then something wonderful happened – another parent saw in Donna what she didn’t see in herself at the time: a future leader.
