Family Outreach in Tyler Continues to be an Active Member of the East Texas Network for Children

Twenty-six years ago, twenty representatives of East Texas public and private agencies met to consider how to enhance communication and client services for the children and families of the area. From those meetings, the East Texas Network for Children (ETNC) was established.

The collaborative tradition continues in an annual conference where more than 300 professionals and foster parents come together each Fall to exchange ideas, share perspectives and enlarge their repertoire of resources.

MCH is a proud member of the ETNC. MCH Eastern Regional Administrator, Traci Wagner, currently serves as the ETNC Board Vice President. The 25th annual ETNC conference was held on September 16-17 at Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas.

Pictured (l to r) in front of the MCH information table at the 2013 conference are staff from the MCH Family Outreach office in Tyler: Traci Wagner, eastern regional administrator; Holli Collins, outreach director; Suzy King, case manager; Jessica Johnson, case manager; Philana Hollingsworth, case manager; and Latasha Hickman, case manager.
