• Julene Julene Figueroa is our Family & Community Partnership Coordinator, and she is an "old timer" when it comes to working with families and communities.  She has served as a Family & Community Advocate (FCA) for our Head Start program since 2009 and has initiated agreements with local colleges among others to provide needed opportunities for our parents' education.  Her education includes a Bachelor's Degree in Community & Human Services and a Family Development Credential from Cornell University. She has her Master's Degree in Social Work through Texas State University and speaks often about how much she appreciates 4C's support of staff development.

    She understands that all parents want a better world for their children and she has the skills to help make that happen.  She will be the point person in the agency for encouraging our parents to participate in the many opportunities of Head Start including the Parent Policy Council and the center parent meetings.  But most of all, she has an adept ability to listen to parents, to treat them with respect and to help structure programs that will be responsive to their needs.
