This month’s VISTA Spotlight is Carolyn Sherrick of Family Visitor Programs.
“Family Visitor Programs has been serving the Aspen to Parachute region for the past 36 years. We assist new and expecting mothers and their families with free educational and support services. These free services focus on childbirth preparation, child growth and development, early literacy, parenting skills, community connections, and much more. I have been a VISTA since August 2019 and wanted to further my education and perspectives on the physical and dynamic needs in the community. I am currently studying for my Masters in Public Health Administration and Policy. There is truly no better way to understand communities you want to impact without fully immersing yourself. Creating change starts with the people. As a VISTA with Family Visitor Programs I work regularly on our Facebook page to provide fun activities and tips on all topics age 0 to 3.
