MECC is a community-based collaborative partnership that takes the lead in building and strengthening the comprehensive early childhood system for Montezuma and Dolores counties. The Pinon Project Family Resource Center acts as our fiscal agent. Our Council Coordinator supervises MECC staff and leads the council in all activities.
Our diverse membership includes representatives from area social service nonprofits; county social service and health departments; preschool directors, teachers, and childcare providers; Head Start; libraries; San Juan BOCES; Southwest Kids; K-12 education; business leaders; health and mental health professionals; families; and other community members who share a passion for young children and their families.
We enjoy collaborating on projects that will make our visions come true; we think of challenges as opportunities. We work hard and celebrate our successes! Our Council meetings are friendly events – we love to welcome new members! Come and see.
