United Way of Greater Lorain County announces Oberlin Kids Community Collaborative

May 31, 2014: United Way of Greater Lorain County has announced that it has launched a new community collaborative that will include 14 partners providing free programs and services to ensure that all children in the Oberlin City School district will be prepared to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.

Oberlin Kids is a collaborative of community and educational organizations designed to develop solutions to ensure all children enter school healthy and ready to learn. The collaborative looks to identify the needs of each pre-school aged child and its family and put them on a track to be prepared for kindergarten.

Oberlin Kids is designed to support the parents and families by providing the resources necessary to encourage their child’s development. Initiatives will include launching a universal learning checkup, resource, and referral program (On Track for Kindergarten), increasing accessibility and participation in health and wellness programs for children and families, increasing participation and access to kindergarten transition programming and building capacity within community organizations to better serve children and families.

In addition to United Way of Greater Lorain County, Oberlin Kids partners include: Child Care Resource Center, City of Oberlin, Kendal Early Learning Center, Lorain County Children and Family First Council, Lorain County Community Action Agency, Lorain County General Health District, Oberlin Business Partnership, Oberlin City Schools, Oberlin College Bonner Center for Service and Learning, Oberlin Community Services, Oberlin Early Childhood Center, Oberlin Public Library, and OhioGuidestone.
