Family Advocates & Community Partners
Each site has a Family Advocate (or another designated staff person) to help introduce/connect families with community resources. They meet with families one-on-one to support needs and goals through sharing resources. They can help families find their local food pantry, get clothes from a church, or sign up for GED or English classes in their community. If a child needs a doctor or help finding a dentist, the Family Advocate can help the family find medical care. If families are looking to sharpen their skills around leadership, advocacy for their children, or economic mobility, Family Advocates can help with that as well. Monthly Family Engagement Events provide ongoing trainings and support to families on a variety of topics. Family Advocates are there to support the family as a whole with needs and goals, so the child can ultimately succeed in school.
