We work with nearly 200 community partners to provide early childhood wellness, kindergarten readiness support, tutoring for grade-level reading, help in developing social and emotional skills, and guidance for graduating on time and learning self-sufficiency.

A Strong Start, A Thriving Life
All children deserve safe spaces where they can learn the skills they need to be successful, no matter their zip code. We know that inequities in learning during the early years lead to lost income, under-optimized career tracks and eventually reduced life expectancy which all carry through for generations. That is why United for Children is proud to offer wraparound services to all children in the 757, from cradle to career, to help break the cycle of poverty.
