    Every Child Succeeds.

    Every Child Succeeds (ECS) is significantly changing the life trajectory for at-risk children and their parents. ECS, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2009, has provided more than 425,000 home visits and served more than 19,000 families. Our staff, volunteers, donors and others are key to the program’s strength. 

    Every Child Succeeds assists families in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky through home visits that help first-time parents create a nurturing, healthy environment. Home visits, which take place from pregnancy through the child’s third birthday, are designed to ensure an optimal start, both physically and emotionally, for children.

    The program, made possible by the  support of private donors and public funds, was founded in 1999 by three organizations: Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency and United Way of Greater Cincinnati.  Fourteen local agencies provide home visitation using one of two national models: 13 Healthy Families America (HFA) sites and one Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) site.
