"The Certification Exam grant has furthered my knowledge and education in my role as a Food and Nutrition Director."

Newton is currently employed at Youth Home, Inc., where continuum of care includes adolescent residential and community based treatment, day treatment, and school-based services, as well as outpatient services for individuals of all ages.

"Youth Home recognizes my accomplishments in Board and Manager meetings and supports ANFP Regional Meetings and the Annual Conference by providing recommendation letters for grant opportunities. It is hard for us to afford to go because I work for a non-profit. They know that attending not only helps me and my certification but also in turn will help the agency!"
