What impact does our work have on Grant County?
Our goals are to increase parent knowledge of early childhood development, improve parenting practices, provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues, prevent child abuse and neglect, and increase children's school readiness and school success. Achieving these goals will improve the health and well-being of families in our communities. (SAMSHSA http://www.nrepp.samhsa.gov/).
Investing in children produces significant long-term impacts for individuals and communities. Children who participate in early education programs receive immediate benefits from improved kindergarten readiness and long-term benefits from school success, better employment, and reduced delinquent and criminal behavior. Every year 4 million children are born in the United States; if each of these children participated in a program like Parents as Teachers, more than $17 billion in benefits could be realized.
Please consider an annual contribution to keep our programs going!
