Thriving Children

OUR GOAL: Children enter school ready to learn and are successful in primary school.

 

Last year we invested and leveraged a total of $493,914 in programs that help children thrive, caring for their needs from infancy through their educational journey.

 

Through our Allocations process, we invested $350,000 in programs that help children thrive, caring for their needs from infancy through their educational journey. These programs include child care, preschool and afterschool, youth development, parenting education and support, mentoring, recreation activities and summer camps, and counseling. More than 6,000 children have been helped through our Partner Programs.

Additionally, we partnered with three programs that drive positive change and improve outcomes for children and youth of racial and ethnic minorities in Groton and New London. Under this grant, these programs will modify existing programs to improve outcomes, increase equity, and expand services to allow all of our children and youth to thrive.
