What is a PAC?
The PAC is a powerful group of parents that come together to make significant change in their communities. We believe that a parents’ voice matters, and when equipped with helpful tools and supportive education, parents can strengthen their families. Because the family is the most important unit on the earth, our goal is to focus on parents and remind them that they are the most important force in their child’s life.
Each meeting is led by a parent that is on the council, and follows a system that has brought about great change and results in the community. Combining this with the community cafe model to discuss topics, and The Strengthening Families: Five Protective Factors as the basis for everything we do.
Health & Wellness
Daily I find that my life, my community, my parenting and our Nation is imperfect. When I’m able to let go of comparing my ordinary challenges to others, I find more peace, contentment and value in all that I do. This belief gives me self-approval that I am good enough. And to get better, I must find and embrace like-minded creative warriors that are in this journey called life—with me.
Parent Advocacy Council,
I joined the Parent Advocacy Council a few years ago when we started the first conversation about why it would be important for parents. The main idea of the council was to give families a voice and to find networking possibilities.
I became one of the parent leaders to help families who are raising children with trauma disorders. Jenny Dew
