16 - 17 Annual Report

Organization Highlights

Research has shown that a child’s earliest years, from prenatal development through thirty-six months, furnish a window of opportunity for enriching children’s development that can provide life-long positive outcomes. Whether families are experiencing challenges such as a developmental delay or disability, poor health, poverty, or a less than optimal home environment, Root for Kids has amazing programs in place to assist them.

Since 1993, Root for Kids (then The Learning Center for Families) has provided over 15,000 families in Washington County and the Arizona strip with the extra support they need. With the investment from the community and donors, last year Root for Kids was able to expand its services and help more families than ever before. Through our programs, we strive to ensure that every child in our community has the skills they need to excel in school and in life.
