Community Resource Specialist / Power of Two
Yvette will stop at nothing to ensure that parents and children have everything they need and deserve. She makes room in her heart for every family she encounters, and she supports them from that place of love. During the pandemic, Yvette has only deepened her partnership with families. She has tirelessly sought out new resources and information, made over a thousand phone calls to families to check on their well-being, and sought out training in mental health first aid so she could walk alongside caregivers as they sought help during these challenging times. With every family she connects with a resource or caregiver that she serves as a lifeline to, Yvette is bringing light to a young child\’s life.
