Dick touched and improved the community.  He frequently saw what most others could not yet perceive, finding possible in the improbable.  Dick was among the earliest proponents of universal day care.  In the 1970’s and 80’s he promoted parent training and early childhood development as strategic approaches to improving educational attainment, workforce improvement and family self sufficiency…  efforts which have taken root in community, not yet at the scale he envisioned, but solidly rooted in public policy.
