United Way Projects Highlights

 

The program services address early childhood development and literacy for
immigrants and refugee (I/R) children aged birth through five.

 

 

1. Immigrant and refugee dad’s project: This project will continue to support I/R fathers in building literacy and school success for their young children. Literacy and parenting materials for I/R dads will be developed. The program will expand and extend into other communities in our surrounding area. The materials produced (books) will be accessible to childcare.

 

2. The lullaby project will address early childhood development and literacy for I/R children through their childcare settings. Building on lessons learned in the Access Project, a team from the Access Project will develop a lullaby training based on the lullaby CD that was created from the Access Project (lullabies from various cultures) that will be offered to childcare providers. This team will also create materials that will be accessible by childcare singing lullabies.
