Listen. Respond. Lift Parent Voices.

When the pandemic shut down our usual way of life, we knew our families would be most impacted. Since the onset, our families have balanced their roles to provide economically for their families. Nevertheless, they have continued to support their students both academically and emotionally. Their resilience is evident, all while dealing with health concerns, distance learning, sheltering-in-place orders, isolation, economic insecurity, and mental stress. PIQE conducted various surveys with thousands of California families. It was vital for us to listen, respond, and pivot our delivery of programs in order to support families. During the 2020-2021 school year, we reached more than 18,000 families throughout California. Thousands responded to our community assessment surveys so that we can share, learn, and enhance our supports.

Together, we are stronger.
