The More Hopeful Futures “road-test” cohort was launched in June 2015. Together, now 14 funder/funding coalitions representing 40 communities in 8 states are partnering with the campaign to “double down” on and strengthen existing community action plans around school readiness, summer and attendance by “lifting up” and intentionally addressing the health determinants of early school success and the role of parents.
Supporting the Funding Partners are a growing coalition of local and national program partners and sector leading organizations which collectively are committed to addressing challenges to progress: pervasive fragmentation and duplication of effort; proliferation of silos, lack of policy alignment and the challenge of gaining access to data for timely decision making.
