Family Resource Specialist

Irma Cofield

As your Family Resource Specialist (FRS), I have served with the Early Steps Program for twenty eight years and know 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 provide you with information and opportunities for you and your child.

I can also provide you with community resources, support groups, steps for transition to Pre-K and assist with understanding Early Steps services.

Please call or email for any assistance.

I am here for you at your request.
