Standing Strong

Children's Health Council

June 2, 2020, News

Dear Friends,

We are all struggling to process the upsetting events that are unfolding in our country right now. We stand with our communities to oppose racism, hatred and bigotry of any kind and we continue to work each and every day with our colleagues, friends and neighbors to realize a vision of hope for the future.

We advocate for equality, inclusivity and diversity, and we infuse these values into the ways we teach our students, the ways we interact with our clients and community. We deeply respect the promise and potential of every single child, teen, young adult and family that walks through our physical or virtual doors.

Empathy and compassionate leadership are more important now than ever before and must be at the forefront of how our communities move forward. CHC will continue to offer a welcoming place of comfort, hope, inspiration and healing for all families and we are always here for you.

From all at CHC and in solidarity,
My best,
Rosalie Whitlock
