We Heard You
Providing program feedback

We are so proud that CAN staff and volunteers receive consistently positive feedback in our quarterly parent and participant surveys.

However, we recognize the importance of parents and participants being able to communicate concerns about staff, volunteers or the delivery of a program in a timely manner when they do arise.

In order to efficiently address concerns, we have developed a simple process for you to connect with supervisory staff regarding program-related issues.
