The 7th Annual Cultural Broker Summit
Penny Lane Centers staff had the pleasure of attending the 7th Annual Cultural Broker Summit. The theme of the event was Lift Every Voice. Cultural Brokers are African-American community members, who volunteer their time, and heart, as a commitment to address the inequities impacting African American families and children once they have an interaction with the child welfare system. They bridge the gap between DCFS and the families they serve, by fostering communication between the two, ensuring the families’ voice is heard and providing linkage to appropriate resources.
