Parent Leader Team
Centering Community Voice
About the Team
Here at CCR, we spend a lot of time talking about the importance of families that live on Casino Road leading this work. Despite our good intentions, it took nearly 2 years of trial and error to figure out how to do that in authentic, meaningful ways!
And we are still learning.
With the leadership of our wonderful Community and Family Development Coordinator, we convene a group of Parent Leader Representatives. These are local parents that are currently or aspire to be leaders in their community. The purpose of the group is to identify work and projects that are needed in the community. Once a need has been identified, CCR will supply the staffing, resources, and connections to put the idea into action. Some recent examples include the need for a women's emotional support space and creating a directory of Parent Liaisons for our local school district. All Parent Leaders attend a monthly meeting and are reimbursed for their time.
