Voices for Utah Children honored
We’re very proud of our Utah member for being honored last week by United Way of Salt Lake. Voices for Utah Children were awarded the 2011 “Outstanding Partnership for Community Change” award, along with Goldman Sachs, Granite School District and the city of South Salt Lake.
From our Utah member: “Early intervention is one of the biggest keys to later success in school and life, and we are working with the other partners to connect parent education programs, home visitation, and infant and toddler activities with a full year of preschool. Collaboration between these programs services will ensure that kids start kindergarten ready to learn and are on track with their development. Voices for Utah Children is working closely with the Granite School District to to analyze improved academic outcomes and special education cost savings as a result of high-quality early childhood intervention programs.”
Keep up the great work, Voices for Utah Children!
