Great Rivers United Way is proud to facilitate the sparks! Early Childhood Collaborative — a group of early childhood experts, United Way funded partners, and other local organizations that care about kids and families.

Great Rivers United Way is bringing these stakeholders to the table. As a collaborative group, goals and strategies were put in place to ensure that La Crosse County families and children are learning and thriving now, and into the future. By working together, measuring shared outcomes, and striving for resilient families and children, La Crosse County can provide children the best chance at being successful throughout their lives.

sparks! materials and events will encourage caregivers (and all community members) to interact with children everywhere they go, true to the sparks! tagline: every moment is a learning moment.
