On March 8, the Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) hosted a celebration for 19 Family Engagement Specialist that received the National Family Development Credential (FDC). The FDC, a 90-hour course program, works to provide frontline workers with the knowledge and skills they need to coach families to set and reach their own goals for healthy self-reliance in their communities.  During this event, three parents participated as guest speakers, providing inspiring messages to the graduates.  Parents spoke about the positive impact of having a family engagement staff working with them as partners.
