Danbury has embarked on a multi-year journey to explore ways to improve our future by focusing on children's early years.
Entitled Danbury's Promise for Children Partnership, the plan's desired result is:
All Danbury children age birth through eight are healthy and ready for school and lifelong learning.
Danbury's Promise for Children Partnership includes parents, healthcare providers, schools, early childhood care and education providers, and businesses. To find out how we are working together, click on Our Strategies above.
This plan is made possible through major support from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, Children's Fund of Connecticut, and the United Way of Western CT.
To find out how you can get involved, call Caroline LaFleur, Danbury's Promise for Children Coordinator, at 203-300-1486 or email: email@example.com. For a copy of the Danbury's Promise for Children Brochure, click here.
