The Collaboration. The Infant Welfare Society of Evanston and School District 69 have partnered to establish an innovative national model for early childhood education, which offers families comprehensive support and resources. Ready For Success graduates enter kindergarten ready to learn on a lifelong path for success. This program was established through generous funding by The Illinois State Board of Education. Learn more about the partners.

Understanding Impact. To ensure every dollar in early prevention services is wisely invested, research partners from six different academic institutions came together to brainstorm how to implement a series of projects that would examine with breadth and depth of potential impact when early prevention services could be provided to the children and families in District 69. Learn more about the research.
