Great  teachers advocate for the lives of children and their families with the  "wrap-around services" that are available in their communities.  Providing guidance, information, and access to these services is one way  to support them. Very often, families are unaware of the multitude of  support services that are available to them- free of charge. Your job is  to steer them toward these agencies.

Attached is a list of community resources in the Haywood County area.

Your assignment is to compile a  list of these services with phone numbers/web addresses in your area (Elizabeth City, NC)  that you can distribute to anyone that needs it. You may use the sample  as a template and just change the phone numbers.
