Minus 9 to 5 needs you! Collective impact is a community-led process. This means we need all kinds of people to get involved and work to make our region a better place for young children and their families. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, family member, early childhood professional, someone who works with children and families, a business leader, or community activist, we need early childhood champions like you! 

Families

We have opportunities for parents to join our working groups and help create solutions to challenges many parents and grandparents face today. You can find links to resources and other services throughout our community here.
