Lori Williamson's journey towards founding 406 for Kids started almost exactly 30 years ago.
It was when she began working in the Human Resources Department at a large paper mill in Missoula.
She was blessed to have two beautiful, vibrant, healthy daughters, she saw, on nearly a daily basis, many, many families who were not so lucky.
Lori's greatest joy was helping them during their most trying times. Sometimes it was "requisitioning" the corporate jet to fly a very sick kid to a distant city for life saving treatment. Other times it was something as simple as sharing a cup of coffee and a box of Kleenex with a distraught father.
From there Lori served on the Board of Directors for the United Way and the Missoula Youth Homes. She also worked with the Missoula Children's Theatre and Watson's Children's Home and in many, many other similar volunteer positions.
For Lori, it has ALWAYS been about the children and their families. It's not only her passion, but her calling, her very reason for living.
She knew that just as soon as she could, she would leave the corporate world to do what she really loved doing, full-time…helping families when they need it the most.
That time is now and that place is here, in Kalispell, Montana supporting pediatric patients and their families being served by world-class doctors and nurses at the Montana Children's Medical Center.
Join us on this incredible journey for the far greater good!
