Conway’s Children’s Advocacy Alliance receives $15,500 donation from the CALI Class of 2021 to build a medical exam room for victims of physical and sexual abuse. At PrimeCARE, we know how having a safe, trauma-informed environment can make all the difference in providing care. We were so glad to participate in this amazing project!
Committed to Conway
I was chosen represent PrimeCARE and join the Conway Area Leadership Institute (CALI) class of 2021. CALI is an annual year long learning experience for leaders within the Conway community. The program focuses on the past, present, and future development of Conway. Experts and leaders from all sectors of the City of Conway are given a chance to present and facilitate conversations, deep dive on their unique contributions, and cast vision for what parts of Conway could look like in the future. The Conway 2035 plan was a major guiding force as we worked through each session!
From education and parks to business development and downtown revitalization — there is not a rock in Conway left unturned! Corey Parks, Vice President of Economic Development at Conway Chamber of Commerce, does a fantastic job facilitating the entire year. The experience is memorable, inspiring, and truly gives the participants an appreciation for the scope of what it takes to grow a community as special as Conway.
2022 Community Impact Project
In November, CALI began a Community Impact Project as the year was drawing to an end. As a class, we had so many great ideas we could give our energy to, but all of them centered around serving kids. We wanted to support those advocating and working to bring healing and justice for children. The Children’s Advocacy Alliance (CAA) was an easy yes!
Judge Braswell, Prosecuting Attorney Carol Crews, Faulkner County Law Enforcement, CASA Volunteers, and the Children’s Advocacy Alliance shared their first hand experience with us and educated us on how their teams are working to advocate, protect, and support children who suffer abuse.
CAA is expanding, renovating, and growing to better serve kids in the Conway area. CALI classmates took up the challenge to fund a medical exam room and exceed our goal of $15,000 dollars. On March 11, a small group of our classmates presented our donation to Tess Fletcher, executive director of CAA.
Through this project, CALI class members have been educated and inspired to use our influence and resources to impact the course of so many children’s lives. Today there are 30 more adults on their side, committed to supporting the fight for justice and safety. We appreciate all that that our police, social services, civil servants, and the CAA team for what they do each and every day.
