Twelve Days of Growing: Day 7

Twelve Days of Growing: Day 7 150 150 Way to Grow

Day 7 – 7 Different Languages – Did you know that Way to Grow’s Family Educators and Resource Advocates speak 7 different languages? This language-to-language, culture-to-culture approach is the benchmark of our Home Visiting model. It allows our educators to help parents teach the foundations of literacy in their own home. We also help our families navigate the sometimes confusing terrain of the health, education, and social services systems. We offer language support during Parent-Teacher Conferences, during our finance and cooking classes, with applications for aid, and in countless other ways throughout the year.

Year after year, we hear from our families that the support they receive from their Family Educators and Resource Advocates truly makes them feel like a part of their community.

It’s not too late to support our holistic approach to parent and child education. To contribute please click here or phone Melissa Meyer at (612) 874-4740.  To learn more about our programs, please explore our website.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, those languages are: English, Spanish, Hmong, Arabic, Amharic, Somali, and Oromo.
