Our Partners in Equity

From Cradle to Career

Our vision for a just and thriving education system necessarily includes holistic solutions to closing the opportunity gap. How can a child focus on school work when they don’t know where they’ll sleep that night? Homelessness, housing instability, poverty, and domestic violence affect students’ access to a world class education, and disproportionately encumber kids of color. Thus, for the success of each and every child, from cradle to career, the EEC frequently partners with a range of  organizations, teaming up to address the social injustices that unfairly burden our kids.
