Western Panhandle Early Steps
Family Resource Specialist
As your Family Resource Specialist (FRS), I have served with the Early Steps Program for 30 years. I know and understand the importance of family involvement in the development and care of your child. I have experienced the joys and concerns that go with caring for a child with special needs.
I am here to help you understand and navigate the Early Steps process, as well as provide you with information, opportunities, community resources, support groups, and steps for transition to Pre-K.
Please call or email for assistance.
