Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Early Learners Collaborative (ELC)

The Early Learners Collaborative's goal is to increase third grade reading scores in the Greater Roanoke Valley from 79 to 90 percent. Nineteen nonprofits and seven public or governmental agencies work with children and families prenatally through third grade. There are also strategies that strengthen the family and engage caretakers. The ELC operates in the cities of Roanoke and Salem, and the Counties of Roanoke, Franklin, Botetourt and Craig.

The Community Impact Fund is designed to elevate 10,000 families to self-sufficiency, and supports the ELC. We fund programs and partnerships in the community which collectively deliver on this vision. We know from experience, families rely on more than one agency or program when faced with an emergency or a challenging financial situation. We also know to break the cycle of poverty, efforts need to be focused and sustained over time.
