Ronda Bertrand, CCC Director

April was Child Abuse Awareness Month. CCC provided pinwheels and yard signs in all eight of our counties. Trail of Hope Regional Network is required to hold trainings: April 20th was Addiction in the Family presented by Dr. Steve Patrick and Dr. Rick Carroll on Zoom. April 22, CCC and Head Start partnered to raise money for Trooper Teddy Program with the Cattleman’s in Marion County. On April 26th Darkness 2 Light training was in person at the Nelson County Extension office.

I would like to welcome CCC’s New In-Home Worker Amanda Westfall who has been in Early Education for over 10 years and has a passion in teaching autonomy. Amanda brings personal and professional experience to CCC and is ready to start improving lives.

Parent Engagement Meeting Program has been making follow up calls for Marion County Elementary schools in the past month.

Trail of Hope Regional Network is attending Community baby showers in Marion, Washington, Hardin, and Meade counties.

Trail of Hope Regional Networks Build A Bed program has been extremely busy getting over 20 beds to families. We would love to have the Nelson and Marion ATC school build more beds in the fall if the lumber cost is more sufficient. A big thanks to St. Vincent de Paul for making mattresses available for these families.

Wow!! Cakes 4 Kids volunteers have been busy the past month. CCC has delivered 12 cakes to our families.

Trail of Hope Regional Network met in person May 18th for the first time in two years!! We covered major topics and are excited to meet again in September.

September 14th CCC will start meeting at Hardin County Extension Office in Elizabethtown at 10 AM.
