Community isn't just what we work with, it's who we are!!
The Tri-Cities MCM offers information about upcoming community events, professional development opportunities, research and links related to school-aged children and parents.
Events! There are always things happening in the community. This site is one of the many options to find out what is going on and who is doing it. It lists community meetings, projects, and professional development opportunities.
Research and other resources are offered here to help build our capacity as community partners in supporting the families that we serve.
We link to the job posting pages of our members because in the social service industry our personnel is THE most valued resource that we have. If you have skills, talents and resources that you can offer to children and families in the Tri-Cities, check out our job posting page for career as well as volunteer opportunities.
