On the first day of training Maria mentioned that she was impressed with the training materials. She was translating the material into Spanish for her son as Jacky Sylvie taught the information.
On the second day of training, Maria brought her other children and her husband to the class. We were delighted that the whole family was participating in helping their loved one prepare for the future. Maria mentioned that she is a member of the Padres Latinos Ayudando a Ninos Especiales (P.L.A.N.E.S.). The parents have children with disabilities and meet monthly to share resources and support. Jacky offered to share the work of CPSH with the parent group. Maria arranged for CPSH to connect with the coordinator Mary Cardona. Maria also arranged for Mary, a translator, to assist with the presentation. Jacky prepared for the presentation by working with a professional to translate the English CPSH materials to Spanish.
On Saturday January 9, 2019 Jacky met with the parent group at the Emanuel Lutheran Church in Dallas. In spite of the cold and rain fifteen families attended the meeting. Jacky presented information in English while Mary translated the presentation into Spanish.
Maria also shared her experience attending the Home Safety Training Class and discussed the importance of the work of CPSH. The families were delighted that the CPSH website can be viewed in Spanish and other languages. They have begun discussing how to create affordable housing for their children through the CPSH Neighborhood Home project. The families want to attend the next safety training class and have all signed up to receive CPSH emails.
