Staff change at the Maine Children’s Alliance

Many of you have received this news in one form or another, but the Maine Children’s Alliance has undergone a staffing change. Our former Early Childhood Specialist Judy Reidt-Parker has accepted a great new job as Program Associate with the John T. Gorman Foundation in Portland. Judy joins an outstanding organization that has been very supportive of the Maine Children’s Alliance, and we know that our loss is the Gorman Foundation’s gain.
