“In September we received a grant from the U.S. Department of Education,” said Kodey Toney, director of the Pervasive Parenting Center. “Part of what we wrote into that grant was that we would expand our coverage area to include Latimer County This is just a small part of what we have planned to assist families in Latimer County who have children or family members with disabilities. We plan to make Wilburton one of our regular meeting spots for our monthly meetings”

In addition to Latimer County, the Pervasive Parenting Center provides help to LeFlore, Sequoyah, and Haskell counties as well.
