In the midst of navigating the pandemic, it can be easy to lose sight of future things. 2020 is EPIC's 40th anniversary, and now more than ever, we are holding true to our mission : helping families, schools and communities raise children to become responsible and successful adults. That has never been more imperative than it is today.

We've shifted programs like Families in Transition and Incredible Years to virtual models, and now we're also offering remote programming for Car Seat Safety. If you or anyone you know is in need of a car seat, reach out to Program Coordinator Ron Dixon for next steps.

If you haven't already, visit the Parenting Doesn't Stop Project , which includes EPIC Academy , " Covid Conversations ", a Family Support Line , "Parenting on Pause" and an extensive Coronavirus Resource page with additional updates for families. Parenting hasn't stopped, and neither have we. EPIC will continue to adapt with the changing times and serve the needs of our families, just as we have for the past 40 years.

As always, we are wishing you continued peace during these times.

Tara N. Burgess, Executive Director
and the entire EPIC team
