Parent and Family Support (PFS)

The PFS Committee advises the Commission on matters related to Strategic Plan Focus Area 3: Family, Professional and Community Capacity and Focus Area 4: Health. These community representatives help us look deeper at our funded programs and partnerships, with a focus on building a developmentally, culturally and trauma-responsive workforce and helping our work prioritize prevention and family strengthening principles. The Committee’s work is directed by the current First 5 Humboldt Strategic Plan.
