Cuyahoga County Invest In Children
What is Invest in Children?
Compelled by a wide body of research demonstrating that the first five years of a child’s life are a time of tremendous brain growth, and guided by the recognition that no single agency alone could accomplish the ambitious task of preparing young children for success in school and life, Cuyahoga County and key community leaders came together in 1999 to create the public/private partnership known as Invest in Children.
Invest in Children has been recognized as a leader in early childhood system building within the state and the nation. Many of our programs are evaluated independently by a team at Case Western Reserve University. We work together to help increase the development, funding, visibility and impact of early childhood services in Cuyahoga County, and we aim to achieve equity in access to services and eliminate racial/ethnic disparities in child and family outcomes.
