Thank you to everyone who participated in our Home Visiting Summit on September 29, 2014.
Connect. Collaborate. Change.
Children’s Trust hosted a day-long summit to bring home-visiting professionals together to learn and collaborate on ways to build a stronger system for families in South Carolina. Home visiting professionals, child care workers, early childhood interventionists, program managers and administrators attended.
The summit emphasized the importance of integrating early childhood systems and home visiting. South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Director Tony Keck and South Carolina Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter delivered keynote addresses.
Leading to Change President/CEO Eric Rowles, a nationally recognized trainer, speaker and consultant, headlined the morning plenary session, motivating and empowering attendees to think creatively and energetically about collaborative work. Attendees were offered additional learning opportunities during three concurrent breakout sessions.
