Millennia Consulting's Brenda Bannor and Tom Lenz have provided long-term consulting to the Partnership for Resilience, a multi-sector collaboration to help children impacted by trauma and poverty. Recently their efforts resulted in grants from the McCormick Foundation and the VNA Foundation to enable the Partnership to hire its first full-time staff person, a "Southland Partnership Organizer."
"The Partnership for Resilience has built an amazing network of schools and health care providers in southern Cook County," according to Bannor. "Kids are getting their first glasses, having their asthma successfully treated, and seeing a dentist for the first time. We believe that long-term this will have a huge impact on their success in school."
Finding the right candidate for this job is the next task. The job description is posted on the Partnership for Resilience website
