What is a PAC?

The PAC is a powerful group of parents that come together to make a significant change in their communities. We believe that a parents’ voice matters, and when equipped with helpful tools and supportive education, parents can strengthen their families. Because the family is the most important unit on the earth, our goal is to focus on parents and remind them that they are the most important force in their child’s life.

Each meeting is led by a parent that is on the council and follows a system that has brought about great change and results in the community. Combining this with the community cafe model to discuss topics, and The Strengthening Families: Five Protective Factors as the basis for everything we do.

What are the Six Pillars of the Community?

The parents in the PAC came to the conclusion that in order to be effective in our outreach, we must build intentional relationships with leaders in the community who would partner with us to strengthen families. Over time, these people all seemed to fall into one of six categories: Business, Education, Faith-based, Government, Health & Wellness, and Non-profit. This knowledge became an integral part of our work and a core element of everything we do.

Parent Advocacy Council,
Parent Leader

The main idea of the council was to give families a voice and to find networking possibilities.

I became one of the parent leaders to help families who are raising children with trauma disorders.
