Since its inception in 2013, Faith-Based Coffee has provided a means for community partners and schools to collaborate and meet the needs of children and families in Evergreen and Vancouver Public School districts. In 2015, the success of this effort was recognized as a Promising Practice by National Association of City and County Health Officials. Thanks to this effort, every school in both districts now has one or more dedicated faith partners who make a difference in the lives of our community’s schools and children. We are all grateful for the success of this effort.
Although the need and the work continues, the monthly meetings of Faith-Based Coffee are suspended. If you are looking to support a local school, please contact:
- Evergreen Public Schools: Melanie Green at Melanie.Green@evergreenps.org
- Vancouver Public Schools: Catherine MacCallum-Ceballos at Catherine. MacCallum-Ceballos@vansd.org
Individuals and organizations who want to stay connected with similar partnerships and opportunities to support children and families are welcome to attend meetings of the PACEs Action Alliance.
