Project of the Month: Educare Arizona
NMTC financing helped Educare Arizona to open a new facility in Phoenix. Educare Arizona is a full-day, year-round program for 191 children from birth to five years. It features the best-available, evidence-based strategies for preparing at-risk young children and their families for success in school. Educare Arizona is an extremely effective early childhood program that uses research-based practices to provide highly supportive and positive learning environments. It also supports families as champions for their children’s education.
Educare Arizona's mission is to close the achievement gap with low-income, high-risk children who struggle to be on par with their classmates in school. It works not only with children to close the educational achievement gap, but also with families to help them transition out of poverty. This two-generation approach will have a lasting impact on both the community and Arizona as a whole.
