Every Child Succeeds 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 – with the mission to ensure an optimal start for children by promoting positive parenting and healthy child development prenatally and during the important first 1,000 days of life. Since that time, we’ve served over 25,000 families and completed almost 600,000 home visits.
Every Child Succeeds believes:
All children deserve an optimal start.
Every Child Succeeds is based on a strong scientific foundation demonstrating that a nurturing and stimulating environment in the first 1000 days of life promotes optimal brain growth, cognitive development, psycho-social adjustment, emotional and behavioral health, and a significant, long term change in child and family trajectories.
All parents want to be good parents.
Every Child Succeeds helps parents create a stimulating, nurturing environment that is essential for brain development and the best start in life. Every Child Succeeds encourages independence, autonomy, problem solving skills, and self-reliance.
What we do and how we do it matters.
High quality, evidence-based programs implemented with fidelity will optimize developmental trajectories of children.
Program decisions must be data driven, utilizing the best available information and continual testing for improvement.
We currently partner with 9 provider agencies whose caring professionals help new parents and their families raise successful, thriving children. Our trained home visitors provide one-to-one guidance for families in seven counties in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.
