We are proud to introduce to you: Mandy Whitner, the new Be Ready Early Childhood Navigator. The purpose of the Be Ready Navigator is to help families with young children, birth-age 8, get connected to any resource that they may need to be successful. Whether it be a need related to language and learning, feelings and behavior, or health and activity, Mandy can provide assistance. This is a free resource to the community that came about through a community wide collaboration focused on school-readiness called "Be Ready Larimer County". Forty-one organizations in Larimer County have been a part of the Be Ready public awareness campaign, with a goal of making Larimer County one of the best places in the country to raise children.
