(United Advocates for Children and Families coming to the County)…The decision was made this week.
Doctor Oscar Wright, Chief Executive Officer of UACF in Sacramento says that an Imperial County Chapter was approved. An application was submitted to the UACH Headquarters in June. Wright would only say the application was submitted by a group of parents for the Imperial County. United Advocates for Children and Families is a major, statewide umbrella agency that has numerous chapters throughout California. Its mission, according to the CEO, is to promote the emotional, behavioral and social well being of children, youth and families through transformational leadership. Maria Peinado has been named President of the local Chapter.
