I have been a board member with the Rutland County Parent Child Center for a little over a year, and I am still amazed at what this organization accomplishes. I personally do not have children, but it doesn't mean I can't appreciate how RCPCC's services have bettered the greater community. Building healthy families is the first step in solving many systemic communal issues. I applaud the work they do, and I will continue to support the Rutland County Parent Child Center in any small way I can.
RCPCC has been a blessing in disguise. I was a single mother with no high school diploma, wondering how my daughter would ever be proud of me. I heard about RCPCC and as soon as I talked to Tammy Cabezola about the program, I was sold. Coming here has truly brought so much to my life. Everyone in the program goes above and beyond to help. From day care to my daughters physical therapy, we have been supported and treated with such high respect. My teachers, Heidi Daub and Tammy Cabezola, have helped me regain confidence in myself. When I think about all that this program has brought to myself and others, I am overwhelmed with pride. This program, the staff, they give hope to those who were told they can't, they give us options, they help us to grow and be able to look in a mirror and say, "Yes I can."
Review from Guidestar
RCPCC is an organization I have proudly served for many years now. Executive Director Caprice Hover has brought the highest standards and practices to the organization while developing programs to fill gaps that existed in the county. We serve children and families and pregnant and parenting young adults with an energetic and positive staff and management and several locations in Rutland County.
Review from Guidestar
This nonprofit is poorly managed and does not serve the community in a manner as set forth by the other Parent Child Centers in Vermont. The Board is out of touch with their responsibilities, and fail to govern this nonprofit in a constructive and responsible manner. The books and records do not accurately reflect how donations are used.
This is a nonprofit that is seriously out of sync with the purpose and mission of nonprotis. It has a board of directors that will not follow their By-Laws, a Treasurer (Lindsey Johnson-Suddarth) who does not look after the best interests of the organization. This board has created a hostile environment for the staff, who are dedicated and committed to serving children and families. Something should be done to hold boards accountable for the damage they cause to a nonprofit.
