We will be strategically seeking collaborators and partners to support our mission in under-served areas. If your business is seeking a strategic relationship with a non-profit whose mission is to acknowledge the critical nature of early childhood learning, the necessity of living wages for Teachers, and the development of resilient families, we want to hear from you. Building resiliency in individuals and families is good for employers, neighbours, schools and communities. We all win when we feel we belong-somewhere.
