Values and Beliefs
We believe in a Supportive Community where:
1. Early childhood and protective factors for healthy brain development are prioritized,
Families’ basic needs are met, and
Education for parents, families and caregivers is ensured.
2. We believe that System Alignment occurs when the community:
Implements policies and practices that support families, parents and caregivers, and
Ensures measurable outcomes for maximum impact.
3. We believe in Equitable Opportunities for:
Accessible and integrated healthcare and behavioral health services,
High-quality, affordable early childhood education, and
