We met Tara just before her little one was born. A few weeks later, she welcomed her daughter into the world, and we welcomed Tara into our Family Connections Program. She started in the dental assistant program at Clover Park Technical College soon after.

Today, Tara has a dental assistant job waiting for her after graduation this spring, and she will eventually begin classes towards her ultimate goal of becoming a dental hygienist.

There is a shortage of dental assistants and hygienists in Washington state. And, once Tara graduates, she will help fill the need for trained dental technicians in our region.

Your support will help Tara to graduate on time, keep her daughter safe, and embark on her dream career. By making childcare more affordable and consistent for parents, success stories like Tara’s are much more possible.

“Goodwin Connections truly cares about my family. When I got pregnant in high school, I thought my dreams of being in the dental field were ruined. When I first met with them and found I could still go to school and have my daughter in the amazing childcare on campus I cried. I was so happy and relieved.”
