Dear Community

As we start in to the month of May we are challenged daily by the
constant change happening in the world. Hopefully you are feeling
refreshed and motivated by the growth you see outside and look ahead
at the growth that can be made in your communities. Here at
PCAP we are adjusting to the changes and celebrating new life,
as our case manager Taylor leaves us for maternity leave. We are all
working hard to make sure that our community partners are supported
in her absence and encourage you to reach out to us if PCAP and FESS
can help support your work in our clients lives and communities.

Thank you, 
Kassie Trotter (She/Her)

PCAP Clinical Director

Congratulations Taylor!

Parental Compass Podcast

Family Education & Support Services Partners with
Vroom and Washington DOH

tells us that early childhood is a critical period of brain
development. To make the most of this critical time, Washington State
Department of Health (DOH) has been sharing Vroom with partners
across Washington since 2019. Vroom recognizes and reinforces the
power of parents and caregivers to play a proactive role in
children’s early brain development. It takes early brain science out
of the lab and puts it in the hands of caregivers and the important
adults in children’s lives, giving them positive, tested tips and
activities. Vroom is available via an app, website, text message
platform and print materials.
