Life Connections is partnering with Pikes Peak United Way’s school readiness initiative, Success By 6® (SB6) which addresses the importance of a child’s first six years of life. Through this initiative, Success By 6® is preparing children to succeed in school and in life. The goal of this collaborative effort is that all children in our community are ready for school as they begin kindergarten.
Our Early Literacy Learning efforts are focused on providing age-appropriate books to Catholic Charities’ clients who have young children. In addition to receiving a book when they visit one of our programs, the importance of reading to their children will be stressed to parents who will be provided book marks offering reading tips and suggestions. Children birth through five and their families who live in Colorado Springs School District 11 and Harrison School District 2 represent the majority of clients that we serve and is the focus of our early literacy program.
