Children’s Action Alliance partners with the community and pulls together the research that shows what strengthens families and then put it into practice through policy. One example of this was our work to support First Things First and protect its independent funding source.

We know that quality child care is an essential piece to keeping families together and giving young children the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

In 2013, working mom Jenn shared her story with us about how scholarships from First Things First made it possible for her to send her daughter to a quality child care center. Watch Jenn’s story here.

Your donation today makes it possible for CAA to build Arizona policy so we can implement proven solutions for children and families statewide.

Thank you!
