Strengthening Families Washington 2016 Unsung Hero: Chandra Reeves

February 4 2016

Honoree:  Chandra Reeves, Tulalip

Nominator:  Early Learning/ECEAP Staff at Tulalip


Even after experiencing several tragedies within her family, Chandra Reeves has shown resilience and a 

determination to keep her family strong and her culture an integral part of their lives.  She not only cares 

for her own children, but also those of her two sisters’ as well.  Chandra has overcome obstacles in her 

life in part by her strong will and also by recruiting support from others within the community.  The staff 

here feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know Chandra and her children.  We have seen 

them grow and develop under her guidance, and have witnessed Chandra’s growth as well.  She has 

instilled social and emotional competence in her children, and she ensures that their culture is a major 

part of their upbringing.  Chandra has shown courage and strength in her life, and should be awarded an 

Unsung Hero Award.

Seattle's Child is proud to once again sponsor the Unsung Heroes being honored in February by  the Department of Early Learning’s Strengthening Families Washington. Every day this month we'll present an Unsung Hero on seattleschild.com.   Nominations are accepted from around the state and and include biological parents, grandparents, foster and adoptive parents. Some volunteer at local schools; some have started nonprofit organizations; some mentor others in their communities. All honorees are true heroes - outstanding caregivers doing important work on behalf of children.
