Community Partners is inviting residents interested in early childhood development in Buffalo County to give their input on Thursday, February 2 from 10 – 2 pm at ESU10, Room A. The event will be facilitated by Nebraska Children and Family Foundation as a part of the Buffalo County Rooted in Relationships Early Childhood System of Care Self-Assessment. This meeting will determine how well Buffalo County is serving the social, emotional needs of young children. Information gathered from this meeting will provide the Buffalo County Rooted in Relationships initiative with the foundation to improve services to meet needs of our children in Buffalo County. Lunch will be provided.
“Rooted in Relationships is a great opportunity for Buffalo County. We already have a lot of great resources working toward social, emotional development of youth, but this initiative will really bring all of those resources together. Not only are we building off of our strengths, but we will also take a look at our gaps and barriers and start to address those needs,” said Tana Miller, Behavioral Health Coordinator at Community Partners.
Community Partners is bringing partners together to develop an early childhood development initiative in partnership with Rooted In Relationships, an initiative funded by Nebraska Children and Family Foundation. One part of this initiative supports the Pyramid Model in selected family childcare homes and childcare centers. In addition, the group will develop and implement a long-range plan that influences the early childhood systems of care in the community and supports the healthy social-emotional development of children. If interested in joining this initiative you can fill out a form at: bcchp.org/volunteer.
