Help Connect Parents and Caregivers to Community Resources and Programs

Article by Urban Alliance staff.

Thrive early childhood resource centers help more holistically meet the needs of caregivers and their children by providing connections to additional early childhood resources and programs, such as WIC, birth23, Help Me Grow, and local preschools.

And, churches or ministry organizations in the Urban Alliance network now have the opportunity to become equipped through Urban Alliance's Thrive initiative to offer early childhood resource centers at their child and youth-serving programs.

Thrive is an Urban Alliance initiative to help churches and ministry organizations reach and serve young children and their caregivers throughout critical developmental stages so they experience nurturing relationships and develop strong foundations for learning.

During the Thrive community resource training, participants will be equipped with the materials and skills to effectively connect the families they serve to programs that support healthy childhood development.
