The upcoming community input sessions are a continuation of the public feedback gatherings that began when the Children's Services Council was still being organized

Almost 2 years after voters approved the Leon Children's Services Council, the organization is gathering public input on what its priorities should be. That will take the form of community listening sessions starting this week.
Children's Services Council Executive Director Cecka Rose Green said some important decisions are still outstanding.

"No funding decisions have been made. There have been no conversations to even anticipate any funding going out to particular providers."

And that's because the council has yet to completely determine what's already available through other resources. Although many children, she said, are still falling through the cracks.

"There are pockets of our community that don't even know services exist."

The initial 4 community listening sessions kick off at 6 this Tuesday evening (3/29) at Raa Middle School. This Thursday, it's a "youth only" feedback session at the Palmer-Munroe Teen Center. Next week, the Children's Services Council will be at the Walker-Ford Community Center on Monday and Chiles High School on Tuesday, both of those sessions at 6:30 p.m.
