The Allied Organizations group consists of government agencies, businesses, foundations and non-profits who, in some what or another, support greater investment in early childhood.  Through organizational support, we expect to see our state improve educational outcomes, build sustainable economic development and assure better quality of life for all of our citizens.  Member organizations agree to:

  • Provide focus on greater investment in early childhood development programs
  • Be supportive of policies and priorities that prevent rather than punish and that offer a hand up rather than a hand out
  • Focus will be on providing family opportunities for cradle to career success
  • Be given the opportunity to sign public letters of support or opposition, as government wrestles with allocation of scarce resources
  • Be asked to provide a balance in the message legislators often get from single issue advocates
