The Early Childhood Alliance
WHOLE CHILD, WHOLE COMMUNITY
The Early Childhood Alliance and LAN 41 join together to support children and families in Niles Township
More than 40 partners from The Early Childhood Alliance (ECA) and the Niles Township Local Area Network (LAN 41) joined together in 2020 to ensure all children in our community thrive in and beyond school. With more than 21,000 young people residing in Niles Township, including 5,277 children aged birth to three, we are uniquely positioned to connect our children and families to important resources they need to thrive today.
Our dynamic collaboration of community-level partners is formed with leaders from across sectors. We meet regularly to coordinate referrals and information that address the immediate needs of families with children from birth to age eight from Niles Township. Together, members share knowledge and make important referrals that support the social-emotional, mental health, medical, dental and early learning needs of our families.
