Early experiences in life shape the brain and create a solid foundation for children's development. It's easier and less expensive to build a strong foundation than correct problems later on. Public investments in early childhood can produce important long-term implications that impact the prosperity of our communities.

“Change in Mind: Applying Neurosciences to Revitalize Communities” is a three-year initiative of the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Palix Foundation

As a member of this national and Canadian initiative, Children’s Home Society of Washington works to infuse groundbreaking brain science into policy reform efforts to better the lives of all children and their families.
