Why it takes all of us to support kids and families, plus other June happenings at Interfaith.

Repeat after me: no more gaps!

On May 19, I shared a personal story at our annual Caring for Kids (CfK) Breakfast. CfK, the foundational program of Great Expectations (GE), provides access and funding to quality early child care education and family support. And GE is our community’s collaborative response to educational inequities. 

Unfortunately, I did not have early access to a program like Caring for Kids, which created an early learning gap. I was fortunate to receive special education that helped close my learning gap. This enabled me to go on to have outstanding educational and professional success. Read more.

Working in partnership for local kids

To date, we are nearly 50% to our goal of $400,000 by June 30.
Support our Youth & Education work by giving today!

It takes a village to bring about true, systemic change and educational equity for all kids and families in our community. None of us can do it alone. That’s why the Great Expectations Initiative works to strengthen the entire “ecosystem of support”—families, teachers, schools, community members and organizations.
