This public/private partnership is a distinct initiative to develop and strengthen systems, forge strategies, and increase public awareness for all early childhood programs in Alabama.
The APC provides programs that are dedicated to cultivating thriving lives for our young children. Find out more about our programs and access countless resources.
Our mission is to work in partnership with families and organizations to ensure that all Alabama children (birth to five) get everything they need to develop to their fullest potential.
HOW WE HELP CHILDREN
In 2000, government officials, service providers, advocates, and business leaders came together to discuss and share ideas regarding the enormous needs of Alabama’s young children. Perhaps the most significant outcome of these meetings was recognition of the need for improving services, streamlining coordination, and maximizing available resources. The need for a better, more synchronized structure for public-private partnerships led to the creation of the Alabama Partnership for Children.
We have compiled numerous resources right here on our website, and we did our research. It’s important to trust your sources of information, so we have done the hard work for you and made sure our information comes from reputable sources.
Because we know we can have a more powerful impact when we work together rather than alone, we have formed many partnerships and relationships that allow us to effectively work together for Alabama’s children.
Our work in Alabama is based on the precept that it is much easier and more cost-efficient to build a healthy, productive child from birth than it is to remediate a troubled child, recapture a troublesome youth, or rehabilitate an adult who is not contributing positively to our society or our economy.
