Recommended by the Oregon Early Learning Department of the Oregon Department of Education, LBCC showcased its regional work to bring the Parenting Education Hub, Early Learning Hub and Coordinated Care Organization in Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counties together to improve outcomes for young children.

The national meeting, hosted by the Oregon Community Foundation, included representatives from 21 foundations including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Kresge Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. 

LBCC Family Resource and Education Center staff that presented at the conference included Kristi May, Early Learning Hub manager, Jerri Wolfe, Parenting Education and Family Connections faculty chair, and Kris Wessel, project manager for a new initiative underway called the Pollywog Project.
