Parents & Families

Families are the Strength of Our Community

MECC’s members believe in families!

After all, we ourselves are parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, and belong to extended families.

We know first hand:
★ the joys and challenges of raising children.
★ how hard it is to juggle the competing demands of home, work, and/or school.
★ that families need information and support with parenting questions, choosing child care, finding needed resources, and becoming advocates for their kids.
that everyone needs help now and then.

We believe that:
★ strong families are the foundation of healthy, vibrant communities.
★ strong, loving families raise the children who will become tomorrow’s citizens.
★ you are your child’s first teachers.
★ the strong, nurturing relationships you form with your child, and the experiences you share, will have a lasting impact on his or her development, success in school, and life.
