Innovation: Fostering early literacy and access to developmental resources for children exposed to early childhood trauma (many who are born substance-exposed) to help prepare them to succeed in school. This collaboration uses a two-generation approach, working with parents and caregivers before a child is even born to encourage development of not only the child but also of the family unit.
