Watch Our Story
19th May 2023
This blog is part of a series covering our Uvalde Early Childhood Development (ECD) Center and their response to the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
Last May, 19 children and two teachers were murdered at Robb Elementary School.
The shooting left the small town of Uvalde, TX in disbelief, despair, and grief. After something so traumatic, it’s difficult to know how to move forward. How to heal.
Just a few blocks from the school, CPLC operates a Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Center that has been serving Uvalde for more than 20 years. Some of our former students were among the victims. Many of our students and staff had family in the school during the tragedy.
Our small team at this center committed themselves to doing what they could to help their community heal during this impossible time.
We have shared meals and tears together. We have checked in and supported where we could. We have shown up. We have made space.
Today, we would like to share their story with you.
Will you care to listen?
