Wilcox- Hildreth Selected for Communities for Kids Initiative
Wilcox-Hildreth has recently been selected to be part of Nebraska Children and Families Foundation Communities for Kids, a state-wide initiative which supports young children, families and those providing their care. The Communities for Kids initiative is a multi-year planning and implementation initiative that was created in response to community requests for assistance with shortages of high-quality early childhood care and education programs. These shortages impact children’s optimal development and also pose a challenge for communities hoping to attract and retain the viable workforce they need to thrive.
We are currently in the process of building a core team & identifying leaders who would like to help be part of this project. We would like to invite anyone of interest to attend our Initial Planning Meeting. Supper will be catered so please contact Justin or Kelly for your reservation by 2/28. The students of the National Honor Society will also be available for anyone needing childcare during the meeting.

“Communities for Kids is excited to work closely with Wilcox-Hildreth community partners using a collective impact approach to address their quality early care and educational needs. With this approach community partners will lead the way by determining their own needs and strengths while Communities for Kids provides support and technical assistance along the way.” said Shonna Werth, Associate Vice President of Early Childhood Programs at Nebraska Children and Families Foundation.
