Introducing the Leading from Home Provider Leaders

Home Grown is pleased to introduce the cohort of incredible provider leaders in our Leading from Home initiative. The Leading from Home initiative launched in February 2021 with the goal of identifying and supporting provider leaders leading grassroot networks in their communities. Home Grown created Leading from Home with the belief that it is critical to engage providers and parents in policy change and to support the leadership of providers and their ability to influence policy and systems.
