“I would like to continue with [Families First] to continue supporting families, especially mothers and their children in their development.”
Marica is a Chelsea Public School teacher and mother of a 10-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl. She joined Families First’s Power of Parenting program in 2020 and later participated in the Parent Leadership Program.
Marica worked with the “Every Child Shines” project in East Boston. Over seven months, she worked with her team to train and support “Parent Champions” involved in promoting awareness of The Basics, a neighborhood-wide initiative focused on the vast influence of parenting in early childhood.
Now, Marcia is a Leadership Ambassador for the Chelsea Area Parent Leadership Program.
Marcia is a valued member of the Families First community, a leader of change, and an advocate for families and communities in East Boston, Chelsea, and beyond. And she’s still not done. She notes, “I would like to continue with you to continue supporting families, especially mothers and their children in their development.”
