Our Mission is Strengthening children and their families at the most critical times in their development and is our driving force. Our staff, our volunteers, our sponsors and our children fuel our passion and ignite our success.
Recent research confirms that the first five years of a child’s life are particularly important for the development of the brain, and the first three years are the most critical in shaping the child's brain architecture. These early years are the foundation that shapes children's future health, happiness, growth, development, and learning achievement while at school, within the family, and as part of the community.
Our history of using evidence-based programs has helped us achieve positive outcomes for children and families. Integrated teams of therapists, teachers, and other health professionals help each child overcome obstacles to independence and prepare them for the next phase in their life. 45% of children who start our program are measured as performing at or above age-level. Upon leaving our program, more than 92% are at or above age-level. These results serve as a testament to the services and benefits we provide our children, our families and our community.
