Through the Whole Child Connection, families can link to all of the human service providers and resources available to children under six in one convenient step. Our "no wrong door" approach makes it easier for families to gain access to resources.

To become a part of the Whole Child Connection, providers agree to:

  • attend Whole Child Connection training
  • keep organization and program information up-to-date in the WCC database
  • respond to service requests in a timely manner
  • maintain client confidentiality

For more information or to become a Whole Child Community Provider in the Whole Child Connection, contact Kim Ross.

Local human service providers come together as the Whole Child Family Education Coalition. This group is charged with identifying community needs and service gaps, discussing best practices, developing strategies for collaboration and promoting the Whole Child philosophy in the human service community.

For more information about the Whole Child Family Education Coalition or to attend our next meeting, contact Kim Ross.
