Warren County organizations: How CFM Blueprint can support our work with children

The Vicksburg Post spoke with staff from two organizations in Warren County about how the Blueprint can help support their work to improve children’s well-being.

Vicksburg YMCA Afterschool and Summer Program Director Dana Tankersley believes that the initiatives laid out in the Blueprint can definitely make an impact in helping their program meet the needs of children from all backgrounds who come to their program.

Michele Connelly, executive director at United Way of West Central Mississippi said that the CFM Blueprint is a fantastic report filled with great data and resources.

“It’s intentionally used to be an invitation for our community across the state to collaborate with each other, and that’s the key,” Connelly said, “It’s collaboration.”
