Washington Prenatal-to-Three Coalition
Since October 2021, Pritzker Children’s Initiative has provided critical support to Washington Prenatal-to-Three (PN3) Systems Building efforts with an aim to connect initiatives, including Help Me Grow, with the shared goal to increase the number of low-income infants, toddlers, and their families receiving high-quality services by 50% over the next five years. The PN3 work plan strategies focus on four core areas: 1) Increase food security; 2) Increase access to prenatal and pediatric medical care; 3) Increase access to concrete supports; and 4) Improved child development outcomes. WithinReach, in partnership with Kauffman & Associates Inc., are supporting the planning and facilitation of our WA PN3 partner gatherings that include leaders from state agencies, statewide organizations, early childhood champions, and local Help Me Grow communities.
In 2023 we will be hosting three full coalition meetings (two virtual, one in person). There is also a new structure for the WA PN3 systems building which includes three strategic sub-committees around the topics of targeted universalism, family voice, and advocacy. The sub-committees will be introduced during the May full coalition meeting, and the first meetings will be scheduled in May/June. Participation in these sub-committees are open to all Washington PN3 coalition partners.
Please reach out to Jesse Gritton (email@example.com) or Sydney Boothe (firstname.lastname@example.org) to join the mailing list.
