2000 HEED Fund Grant Success Stories


marygosche.jpg (35080 bytes)
Personnel from several human service agencies in southeast Missouri were able to establish parenting corners in Cape Girardeau County with the assistance of a HEED Fund grant. Parenting corners are mobile displays that provide parents with access to a variety of parenting resources, including free printed information, videos and books available for check out, and telephone access to child and family professionals. All parents need information and support, regardless of where they live and their socioeconomic status. When established throughout a community, parenting corners give parents and caregivers more convenient access to information that can help them be successful in their role. Mary Gosche, Human Development Regional Specialist and HEED grant recipient, used the HEED funding to purchase materials for the parenting corners. She is pictured here with Glenda Smith and Keely Martin, members of the resource review committee.
