The City of Evanston’s Youth & Young Adult Division, Connections for the Homeless, Curt’s Café, Erie Family Health Centers, Infant Welfare Society of Evanston, James B. Moran Center for Youth Advocacy, PEER Services, Youth Job Center, and Youth & Opportunity United formed the “Collective” in fall 2018 to leverage our resources and work toward designing an accessible, culturally attuned, and responsive safety net for young people and their families. Strengthening community systems in this way will provide the foundation and resources necessary to foster the healthy development of families with young children, including readiness for kindergarten.
