As Executive Director of FCC, Amanda wants to make sure that every child has the safe, happy, healthy and loving childhood they deserve. She wants to make sure that our children feel empowered and they're not afraid to use their voice.
"We all want to change the world and make it a better place. But it has to start in our own communities. One child at a time…one family at a time."
Missy Denning has been with Family and Children's Council of BHC for more than 20 years. She oversees both the Parent Connection and Empowering Parents programs.
"Every parent wants to be a good parent, I firmly believe that. Sometimes people just need the extra tools and support to help them be successful.
I'm so proud of our FCC programs that invest in as well as benefit our parents here in Black Hawk County."
Glenda Husome oversees both the Stewards of Children and Take Charge of Your Body programs at Family and Children's Council of BHC.
"Everything kids learn, they learn at home. And unfortunately, there are many children who live in unhealthy environments.
We help give kids a voice by teaching them the difference in what's right and what's wrong. We also give them a secure outlet to break their silence if necessary."
Vanessa McGuinness oversees the Partners for Parenting Families, Baby Safety Project and Car Seat Safety programs at Family and Children's Council of BHC.
"I'm proud of the programs we have here at FCC because we're helping to protect children from the moment they come into this world.
From making sure a car seat is installed correctly to child-proofing a home, we want to make sure every child has a happy, safe and healthy start."
