Parent Council – We seek parents who are on a challenging journey to serve on the Parent Council. The Council is comprised of 10-12 such parents who meet in person with Foundation board members every other month for 90 minutes. The Parent Council provides feedback and direction to the Foundation to plan education workshops, networking opportunities, recognition programs and other targeted resources. Each Council volunteer also receives complimentary admission to the Foundation’s annual Gala in the October.
