Steve Yoakam & Shawn Judge
Shawn and Steve, both professional actors, moved to Minneapolis where acting opportunities were plentiful in theater, film, and television. Steve explains, “I thrive on live audiences. When you’re tired after many performances, you see a five-year-old child beaming in the front row, and you do it for them,” he says. “That’s why you’re there.”
That same love for children fuels their support for early education and Way to Grow. “I love Way to Grow’s approach,” says Shawn. “Family Educators go into homes and work with parents and children and also reflect their culture. It gets results.” Adds Steve, “I like that Way to Grow starts as early as possible with children right in the home. It is a ‘boots on the ground’ effort and community action at its finest.”
Your generous gift allows us to continue supporting hundreds of families across the greater Twin Cities area. With your help, we continue to engage with families, connect them to services and resources, and empower parents to become their child’s foremost educator.
