Thanks to everyone that was a part of the inspiring, successful, and sold-out CFRA Fall Conference!
In case you haven’t heard, this Monday November 9 was CFRA’s Fall Conference. The Conference focused on addressing social, economic, and educational inequalities, particularly among low-income families and communities of color, as a critical strategy for improving California’s health. Family resource centers and their partners play a unique and vital role in building strong families and healthy communities, which is why we were thrilled to have so many of you from the field participate in such an important convening.
With over 100 participants, we were able to learn about topics such as the importance of data collection in the family strengthening field, and using community based strategies like the promotoras model to promote health equity. We had experienced speakers from all across the state, lend their expertise in an array of breakout sessions. We are so pleased to have so many people be a part of our event, and want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we figured out how to deal with reaching capacity and having a waitlist. We will plan accordingly moving forward now that we know the field is excited and passionate about this topic.
