From the time they are born, through early adulthood, providing access to resources and addressing emerging needs is our responsibility as a community, ensuring our kids have the opportunity to thrive.
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Our kids need a quality environment in order to learn and thrive. Funds raised during this effort will help nonprofits serving early childhood education by supporting technical assistance and professional development training needs, and help childcare providers complete their Child Development Associate credentials.
Youth homelessness is a public health crisis in our community. Support for this effort will connect youth to stabilizing resources, expand outreach efforts, services, and educational programs in the shelter system, and help with the implementation of a community-wide response framework.
