award from Dallas Independent School District.
Dallas Independent School District (DISD) honored Rosemary Hinojosa, case manager at MCH Family Outreach in Dallas, with the “Team Player” award recognizing “all-stars” within the community. Hinojosa received the award due to her collaboration with the DISD Office of Parent Engagement for her volunteer efforts to help educate Dallas families.
Hinojosa has made several presentations at DISD schools which has helped her recruit for Nurturing Parenting classes and GAPP case management clients. Her efforts began the collaboration between MCH Family Outreach and the DISD Office of Parent Engagement.
“I’m very honored to have received this honor for my service to the parents of the Dallas ISD,” Hinojosa said. “I love speaking to parents throughout the district about Nurturing Parenting and its cultural relevance to them and of course, I always start my presentations with information on Methodist Children’s Home and MCH Family Outreach programs!”
On May 18, MCH was invited to sponsor an exhibit table, at no charge, at the annual DISD Parent Resource Fair and Appreciation. DISD collaborates with community organizations such as MCH Family Outreach to reach parents and students and provide an avenue to resources in the community.
The fair has been held at a school in the district for several years in the past. Due to increasing attendance, this year it was moved to the Centennial Building at Fair Park. The DISD Office of Parent Engagement was in charge of the event. They were expecting 800-1,000 parents who were bussed in from most DISD schools. But this year the event was a great success with an attendance of 1,600, 1,300 of which were parents from across the district.
