The mission of the Early Success Coalition is to support the expansion and coordination of a comprehensive system of high quality services for children preconception through age 5 through family engagement and community collaboration to promote early childhood development.
We envision a community in which all babies are born healthy, all children experience safe and nurturing relationships, and all children are kindergarten ready.
Our mission is critical because:
- 11.8% of babies born in Shelby County have a low birth weight.
- 24% of children in Shelby Country are in poverty.
- 67% of children entering Kindergarten in Shelby County are not at the appropriate reading level.
- The infant mortality rate is 8.2 per 10,000 births in Shelby County
