Come Join the Linck Family!
Linck is focused on promoting the best interests, protection, and well-being of children and youth. We work with parents, family members, and community organizations to promote and support families to keep children and youth safe.
We work with families to overcome barriers that interfere with children and youth being given the opportunity to meet their full potential, and we acknowledge that systemic racism is one of those barriers.
