We have a powerful impact on children through the Active Learning approach to early childhood development. This empowers each child, prepares them for lifelong learning, and prevents educational delays. Our all-female local staff are trained in trauma-informed practices to provide optimal education for at-risk children.

Through our Adult Mentoring program, we have a lasting impact on families. Parents support each other while learning positive parenting skills and emotional regulation.
