4 reasons to give infants and toddlers a healthy start in 2021
1. 85% of brain development happens in the first three years.

2. Strong, healthy early relationships can buffer against the adverse effects of poverty and systemic racism.

3. Everyday interactions and experiences with their caregivers shape how the brain becomes hardwired to learn and interact with the world around them. (Center on the Developing Child, 2014)

4. Infants and toddlers in Texas constitute the largest population of children in the care of Child Protective Services (CPS). Of the 18,615 children in the Texas foster care system, 46% are children age 5 and under.

Give today, your impact lasts a lifetime.
