We Heard You: Fall 2019 Survey Results

We recently conducted a survey on members’ expectations and preferences for program access.

This survey was sent to CAN families with children aged 3-12* years, who had requested enrollment over the past year.

We had over 300 responses, and we wanted to share some of the results with our members.

*We are currently in the process of conducting a similar survey for youth & adults (ages 13+).
