Early Education Advocacy
Until our multigenerational community is complete, Many Lights is building partnerships and supporting child welfare needs today. 

As a member of the 
First 5 FUNdamentals coalition we are working to raise awareness about the importance of early childhood readiness.  
Building Blocks
Fifty percent of children in foster care who are eligible for adoption are five years of age or younger. Early intervention addressing the trauma and education needs of this vulnerable population will have the best long-term outcomes.

First 5 FUNdamentals operates as a collective impact model with a straightforward vision: All Pierce County children start school ready to succeed. Parent engagement and quality childcare are the two strategies employed to achieve this vision.

Learn more at the First 5 Family Fun Fair (pdf) on Saturday, August 9.
