Kelly Tanaka

“I joined the New Moms Board of Directors in 2018 because I am passionate about the work New Moms does for the community and families it’s serves with their three pronged approach of providing stable housing, job training and family support. I love the fact that New Moms provides a multi-pronged approach focused on the three most important areas for a mother and her children.”

Favorite Quote:“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift. That’s why it is called a present.”

“This is one of my favorite quotes, because it is always so hard to enjoy the present with all we have going on in life, so it’s a wonderful reminder to appreciate the day.”
