You can help ensure that every child has the support they need to succeed in school and life. With your donation, we will work tirelessly during the upcoming legislative session to expand access to child care, publicly funded preschool, and other crucial early childhood services.
Your Support Matters
The most profound brain development happens in the first eight years of life. When young children get the support they need during these critical years, they are more likely to succeed in school, graduate from high school, and experience lifelong health. Right now:
- More than 30,000 low-income young children lack access to high-quality preschool
- More than 42 percent of children in the child welfare system are 5 years old or younger
- Oregon ranks 48th in the country for high school graduation
We have a vision for an early care and education system that gives all kids in Oregon a strong start in life. We’ve based this vision on research, work with schools, districts, and communities across the state, and nearly two decades of experience shaping programs and policy for young children and families.
You can help us bring this vision to life. Donate now to help make Oregon a place where every child grows up healthy, safe, learning, and ready for an amazing future.
