Meet our new HMG Action Team Leads

Washington Communities for Children (WCFC) has filled all of the Help Me Grow Washington Action Team Lead roles. Action Teams will be centered on the values of racial equity and inclusion, with the goal of creating an anti-racist system that serves all children prenatal to 5, with a focus on those children furthest from opportunity. Each Action Team, led by an Action Team Lead, will advise on the design and development of their respective component of the Help Me Grow model.
