“This is what the Children’s Coalition does best—working at both the ground and system levels, we identify problems, collaborate with partners to come up with solutions, and when a solution or program doesn’t already exist— we work with funders and policy makers to create one. In this way, children and families in our community don’t just survive—they THRIVE!” Lynn V. Clark, PhD Executive Director

Early Childhood  reform through teacher training, parent referrals and Early Head Start.

Parenting education for individuals and groups using evidence-based strategies.

Parents call 318-323-8775 or visit the Coalition online to find quality childcare for children ages 0-4. Sign up for parenting classes and connect with other parents and professionals through our membership forums and events.

Educators take Early Childhood classes and learn about evidence-based practices for Healthy Living and Youth Development at the annual What Works Conference.

Community Partners collaborate with professionals and non-profits to identify and address local needs relating to children by hosting or attending a “Children’s Table.” Network with other organizations at community events and in the partnership database.
