Happy Children yield Enriched Parents

The Child Watch Center at St. Vincent de Paul was born from the realization that neighborhood parents, wanting to assimilate to Iowa, were without child care while they attended resource classes.

So, Mercy College Servant Leadership students conceptualized and created the child watch center, as well as, designed and painted educational murals for the children on the wall. (see photo of mural below)
