February is National Parent Leadership Month in which communities across the country honor and celebrate parents who work to strengthen their families, neighbors and communities. In this podcast (recorded in 2016), Sam Blue, Community Engagement Specialist for Vision for Children At Risk through Project LAUNCH, St. Louis, discusses with CTF Executive Director Kirk Schreiber the importance of supporting parents through both the “big” and the “small” parenting moments, victories and challenges. Blue talks about the power of encouragement and how it can bring organizations and communities together.
