Through the Whole Child Connection, families can link to all of the human service providers and resources available to children under six in one convenient step. Our "no wrong door" approach makes it easier for families to gain access to resources.

To become a part of the Whole Child Connection, providers agree to:

  • attend Whole Child Connection training
  • keep organization and program information up-to-date in the WCC database
  • respond to service requests in a timely manner
  • maintain client confidentiality

For more information or to become a Whole Child Community Provider in the Whole Child Connection, contact Kim Ross.

Local human service providers come together as the Whole Child Manatee Professional Network (WCPN). Monthly opportunities exist for networking, sharing, presentations and in-services. A mini resource fair is available at each meeting. Locations vary as provider agencies host each month. Whole Child also facilitates an E Blast group, sharing information provided by community partners we have over 300 participants.

For more information about the WCPN or E Blast group contact Kim Ross.
