National Parent Recognition Month


Minnesota’s 2020 Unsung Hero Award Recipients

Minnesota Communities Caring for Children hosted the 2020 Unsung Hero Award Reception in honor of National Parent Recognition Month on February 27th in Minneapolis. This event celebrates the great contributions parents make to our communities by publicly recognizing, celebrating, and honoring these Unsung Heroes. They are parents and professional partners building on the strengths of families and promoting healthy childhood development by doing so. Parent Leadership is possible when parents have the knowledge and skills that empower them to function in meaningful leadership roles. This "parent voice" helps shape the lives of families and communities, and can direct programs and policies that impact them.
