Reflections from our Coalition Board Members – Catherine Bergman
I believe in helping all children to thrive because… they deserve it. No matter what situation a child is born into or handed in life they all deserve to be loved and given the opportunity to thrive.
I support Power Up YOUth because… they offer services to children regardless of gender, race, creed or ethnicity. They use research-based evidence to create projects to best serve the children and youth of Hamilton County.
My proudest accomplishment as a coalition member has been… hearing teens talk about the programs and how much they love the staff without knowing that I know who and what they are referring to. Seeing youth posts on Facebook showing excitement about Power Up YOUth.
A personal experience that has caused me to build a better community for our young people is… using what I’ve learned as a member of the ACES coalition to make the child care center an inviting, safe place for children to come
Thanks for your service to our coalition Catherine!
