The Center on Society and Health worked with the City of Richmond's Office of Community Wealth Building as part of a grant award from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to support Richmond's efforts to institutionalize stronger coordination across multiple early childhood services and to develop new models for connecting families to needed support services. The award was the result of the work of the Early Childhood Task Force, convened by the Office of Community Wealth Building in collaboration with Richmond Public Schools and other community organizations. The Center in collaboration with Engaging Richmond provided rigorous stakeholder engagement and analysis in order to help establish a community-wide framework for providing comprehensive support services for families of young children and strengthening early childhood education.
