This fall, ARCHS issued over $2 million to support early childhood and parenting programs serving more than 4,500 children and their families in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. This support impacts families and children dealing with a diverse range of challenges, including limited access to therapeutic equipment, securing adoptions for foster children, creating safe sleep conditions for newborns, and several more.
ARCHS has issued grants to the following organizations:
• Annie Malone Children and Family Services
• Educare (services and trainings for home-based childcare programs)
• Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition
• Great Circle
• Midtown Community Services
• Nurses for Newborns
• St. Louis Arc
ARCHS’ early childhood and parenting initiatives provide intensive technical support and professional development training to each of these programs. This includes connecting funded organizations with regional and national resources.
ARCHS secures funding from the Missouri Department of Social Services to support its early childhood and parenting initiatives.
