Family Resource Specialist

Posted: 03/03/2024

Every child deserves access to high-quality educational experiences that ensure they are on track for success in school and their future; however, many families struggle to afford high-quality ECE care or have barriers preventing their access to care. Historically, BIPOC families have had inequitable access to Early Childhood Education services as well as young children in out-of-home care.
