We are thrilled to be part of the first Family Summer Kick-Off! said Evelio Torres, president & CEO of the Early Learning Coalition. These events offering free services, resources and products to families in need allow access to proper care and healthy, constructive enjoyment for all Miami-Dade County residents. Our work and the efforts of our partners have helped build a community where our children are the priority.
The event will feature an 11 a.m. program including remarks from South Florida's elected officials, community partners and social service organizational leaders. All attendees will be presenting proclamations and official recognitions of HSCMD's work in the county.
With state and federal funding cuts to early education and childhood health programs, citizens across the county are looking to us for help, said Manuel Fermin, CEO of Healthy Start. We and our partners are being called to step up to the plate, and I'm so glad South Florida's noted leaders support our efforts for happier and healthier Miami-Dade families.
Thousands of mothers and caretakers are expected to participate in the free event. HSCMD is also offering opportunities for corporations and local health and social service organizations to join the effort.
