Two New Resources for You from CPIR

We are pleased to point you to two new resources that the Center for Parent Information and Resources (CPIR) has created for Parent Centers and others to share. They are:

Parent Centers in Action Oh, what Parent Centers can achieve in one year! This page tells the story of A Year in the Life: Parent Centers in Action nationwide AND it connects Parent Centers with an adaptable infographic they can use to spotlight their individual achievements: who they served, how those services were offered, in what language, and much more.

10 Great Things You'll Find on the CPIR Hub First, we shared this as a poster or handout. Now, it's a page, too! Share the handout AND the page with the families and professionals you work with, which will give them a quick window into the wealth of information and resources CPIR offers.
