Agenda Item #15


Title
Whole Child Connection Brevard (WCCB)

Discussion

Robert H. Seemer, President & COO, Electronic Training Solutions, Inc., will give a presentation on the Whole Child Connection Brevard (WCCB).  WCCB is an exciting new web based system to assist families in accessing community resources to fulfill basic needs.  In 2001, the Lawton Chiles Foundation, in partnership with local communities in Florida and Electronic Training Solutions, Inc. created the Whole Child Project to assist communities to insure all children and families thrive.  The Brevard Children’s Service Council and the Leadership Roundtable are the sponsors of this initiative, as Brevard becomes the eighth Florida County to be designated as a Whole Child Connection community.  WCCB will focus on children and adults ages 0-25 and their families. Before this program is launched we are asking Brevard Public School (BPS) parents to join other families throughout Brevard and to participate in an online confidential survey. This survey will serve as a baseline community assessment and assist in the development of the WCCB system, which will become operational on July 1, 2009.
