WHAT THE COMMUNITY IS SAYING

“I am so happy that my child is participating in group and you know what? Her worries are gone! Well, technically they are still there, but she has a positive attitude towards them now. Like when she forgets to borrow a book, instead of worrying, she would just smile and laugh a little. She would say that she’s not worried anymore. I really appreciate CCC has done so far with her.”

– CCC Parent

“The Child Connection Center helps students who are having social, emotional, and academic struggles through school-based programs, which offer students strategies to deal with stress and solve issues and problems in a healthy, productive way. This opportunity allows students to be successful both academically and socially.”
