Though presently a Board Member, my association with the Prince George's Child Resource Center started almost 20 years ago when I mailed my resume and was subsequently hired as a Director at a new on-site child care center. This job lasted 19 years. Being involved with the resource center as a professional in the field and as a Board Member has allowed me the opportunity to experience first hand the efficient & excellent delivery of high quality services to child care providers, directors and early education teachers in Prince George's County. From the monthly directors networking meetings, the Office of ChildCare roundtable disscussions, the advocacy project to staff training [which is second to none in the county] the resource center consistently provides quality events, resources and cutting edge information to educators which in turn enables us to deliver excellent services to the children in our care. The staff are professional, friendly and go over and beyond what is expected of them. I always look forward to visiting the center because it feels like "a home away from home" where my professional needs will be met.

PGCRC is a well run nonprofit that is always striving to improve how it serves its clients and how it operates. In the 10 years I have known the organization, I have observed it strengthen its internal operations, maintain outstanding service in the midst of variable funding, and adopt practices to grow its staff and strengthen its infrastructure. All of the staff are committed to the mission of the organization. I am impressed by the truly diverse population of families it serves. The organization and its leadership are role models for other nonprofits.

The Child Care Resource Center is an excellent resource to parents and children in the county. They provide so much information, so much service and are always looking for new initiatives to serve county residents in a more comprehensive way. They wrap around the family to provide all kinds of services - food, clothing, enrichment and education for children and parents, car seat safety, health care referrals, assistance with applying for public benefits and so much more. All that they do is amazing and all of the staff are so committed to helping the community!

The Prince George's Child Resource Center is one of those public resources that I keep in mind when helping my constituents. Their services connect children and families with those people and opportunities that create strong, healthy, and prosperous households. I could not be more honored to work with them to serve Prince George's County, Maryland, as we all roll up our sleeves to continue moving forward to a better future. Their efforts and investment in our children today will continue to build stronger communities for generations to come.
