At ELRC Region 5, we recognize the dignity and potential of all people through our interactions with those we serve and the services we seek to deliver, coordinate, and align.

We commit to:

  • Meeting and honoring the child, family, and early care and education professional where they are on their developmental journey.

  • Recognizing that children are best supported in the context of their family, culture, neighborhood, and community.

  • Recognizing (or realizing) we have much to learn from children, families, and early care and education professionals and seek to bring this learning to our work.

  • Collaborating in partnership across sectors and expertise to deliver services that build on the inherent strengths of children, families, and early care and education professionals.

  • Building familial, professional, and partner relationships with open and honest communication.
