Rising Titans

RisingTitians LogoRising Titans is a Community Collaborative made up of six partners who are working on improving kindergarten readiness for children in Lorain through four identified pillars of early learning success including parent engagement, family empowerment, healthy children and resources for providers.

Rising Titans partners will align and coordinate existing activities and programs that fall within the four identified pillars. The collaborative will then expand programing as needed, add targeted activities and programs to fill in gaps, and begin outreach to children not currently receiving early childhood services..

The goal of Rising Titans is to have a community where families have access to the tools they need for kindergarten readiness, parent Advisory Committees help shape the process, all children entering kindergarten have comprehensive health screenings and immunizations, homecare providers are integrated with formal early-learning centers through professional development and coordinated services, and new services are added that eliminate any new barriers to early learning success.

Initial strategies include identifying and providing services to children needing interventions, providing tools and resources to homecare providers, coordinating services between childcare centers and the school district, and working with families to provide additional supports as needed.
