This year, Lam also began serving as one of five PAC representatives on the Oversight Council, the body in charge of ensuring our program meets its state‐funded requirements and outcomes. The Oversight Council will create more accountability and even stronger parent insight into our early learning investments.
The councils are just one example of how United Way is bringing people, organizations and systems together to get better results. Through PAC we are better engaging parents, like Lam, and truly supporting the kids who need it most starting from their earliest learning experiences.
