Together, we’re giving kids the tools they need to succeed – through quality early learning opportunities; summer learning activities; literacy, mentoring and leadership programs; affordable child care and reliable after-school care.
How do we change young lives?
We believe that everyone can play a role in ensuring that children grow up to be productive citizens and members of our community. This begins with a good education, which is the foundation for a child’s success in work and life, along with providing supportive programming that helps youth develop necessary skills for their futures.
Together, we help in so many ways:
WE HELP KIDS BECOME BETTER READERS
We know that solid reading skills are the foundation of future success in school and in life. Our Ready.Set.READ! initiative reaches children ages birth to third grade to help build these critical literacy skills and develop a love of reading.
WE PROVIDE LEADERSHIP AND MENTORING OPPORTUNITIES
Kids who spend quality time with adult role models are more likely to graduate from high school. And leadership opportunities help them develop into caring, independent adults who go on to inspire others.
WE INVEST IN AFFORDABLE CHILD CARE
When we invest in high quality, affordable child care, working families can maintain stable employment and have peace of mind that their children are in a safe place with trained early childhood educators.
Through our unique Community Wide Care approach, your gift helps children succeed in school, empowers families to become financially stable, promotes healthy lifestyles and helps those most in need. Everything we do is focused on Education, Health, Financial Stability and Safety Net Services.Together, we create help, hope and opportunity.
Together, we LIVE UNITED.
