The Alliance for Early Success (formerly the Birth to Five Policy Alliance) is a catalyst to get and keep children on a path to success. We provide leadership, funding, and curate technical assistance. The Alliance creates and enhances partnerships by bringing state, national, and funding organizations together in new and innovative ways in order to achieve results better and faster than anyone can do alone. The goal is to improve state policies that lead to better health, learning, and economic outcomes, especially for the most vulnerable young children.
What a ride. For this Kansas Citian, 2014 will be remembered for the Royals improbable, yet fantastic, run up to the last out of the last inning of the last game of the World Series. For all of us, it will be remembered for some of the most significant gains for vulnerable young children and families we have seen in nearly two decades.
