Equity Lens

The Washington County Early Learning Community will reduce the disparity of opportunities and disproportionate risks for children of color, children with disabilities, English-language learners, low-income children, homeless, migrant, abused and trauma-affected children.

In addition to this commitment all of ELWC’s community partners have signed a Declaration of Cooperation that specifically cite this pledge to  Equity.  Partners additional resources are targeting resources and selective service strategies in neighborhoods and school catchment areas with greatest needs and highest concentrations of at-risk children and families.
