Description: 

Founded in 1977 and headquartered in Washington, DC, ZERO TO THREE promotes the health and development of infants and toddlers with the goal of enhancing their early social-emotional development. It translates research and knowledge - specifically information about the kinds of early experiences that help children thrive - into a range of practical tools and resources for use by the adults who influence the lives of children. This is done through training professionals, building networks of leaders, influencing policies and practices, and raising awareness of early childhood issues.   

Grant Quote: 

"ZERO TO THREE is thrilled to have the opportunity to share our information and resources with early childhood professionals working on behalf of military and veteran families in the LA area."
