Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) Sustainable Community Project

Brief Site Description: 
The MSUE-SCP will target parents of children (ages 2-8) in two neighborhoods, identified as Flint Wards, who were exposed to high lead levels due to the Flint water crisis. Utilizing parenting education and supports for the young children, the project hopes to bring together parents, community members, educational districts, the medical community and organizations that promote early childhood development. CYFAR staff will conduct focus groups during year one to identify needs, strengths, and areas for growth to inform the specific direction of educational interventions and methods.
