On Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 8pm PST Dora Jacildo, Executive Officer of Children Today is our guest on Swoop's World Primetime. With a mission, to provide community based services to children and families experiencing homelessness, fostering long-term family stability and success, Dora must have quite a challenging career. Tune in aas we get to know Dora and the wonderful work of Children Today. Dora Jacildo has over 17 years of experience in the field of early care and education. Her career began as a preschool teacher, and after leaving the classroom Dora worked with child care providers while improving the quality of early childhood education in the South Bay. In this capacity, she mentored over 300 providers and assisted with the start of hundreds of family child care businesses. Since 2004, Dora has served as Executive Director of Children Today. She volunteers on many local committees and commissions, including the Long Beach Area Coalition for the Homeless, the Multi Service Center Advisory Board and is a member of the Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership. Children Today was founded in 1997 by two working mothers in Long Beach, California, after one of them saw a toddler wandering alone down a busy street, wearing only a diaper, his parents nowhere to be seen. It was this haunting image of homelessness – as well as its often overlooked impact on children – that inspired the creation of Children Today. Join us at 8pm(PST).
