Urban Strategies is an organization that tools, connects, and resources grassroots organizations to serve children and families in communities throughout the United States and Latin America. Its mission is to develop strong healthy families, advance the school readiness of children, build engaged communities, and make a difference in the quality of life of vulnerable families. This mission is realized at the grassroots level through collaborative relationships with local community agencies and through partnership with faith based organizations. This mission forms the basis for the creation and funding of the Family and Child Academy/EHS Phoenix.
Funded by private and public resources, the Family and Child Academy is designed to provide early care and education comprehensive services to infants, toddlers, ,pregnant women and their families. Vital to the work of Urban Strategies Family Child Academy is our partnership with faith and community-based organizations in Phoenix and Puerto Rico. Through this partnership, we will provide comprehensive services to children and their families, to include education, health, nutrition, mental health, services to disabled children, services to pregnant women, and successful transition to the next phase of development for the children.
