What We Do
In partnership with families, schools, businesses, early childhood professionals, healthcare providers, and others we work to develop a shared vision and implement a work plan to achieve the following goals:
Home Visiting Systems Coordination
Every parent could use the support and guidance of someone trained and trusted to help them along the way. Maternal, infant, and early childhood in-home parent support programs help children and their families thrive.
Voluntary home-visiting programs are offered throughout Oregon. To help connect them, the Ford Family Foundation invited Early Learning Hub partners to be part of a multi-year project. The project focuses on building regional practices and policies to strengthen collaboration between the programs, including regional common intake/referral processes, professional development opportunities and outreach tools.

There is a growing recognition that achieving third grade success requires a strong continuum of support starting with prenatal development through third grade (P-3). With support from the Ford Family Foundation we are participating in the statewide P-3 Coordination efforts focused on research-based strategies that strengthen relationships between early learning providers, elementary schools, and families. Our goals are to:
Build a coordinated and aligned early learning and early elementary systems based on shared vision, strong leadership, and collaborative decision-making.
Strengthen engagement and partnership between families, schools, and early learning providers.
Improve the quality of early learning programs and early elementary classrooms through professional development and support within and across sectors.
