With the right help low-income children can come into the world and grow up with the chance to succeed. Proper interventions can go a long way toward mitigating what is otherwise a significant array of disadvantages that carry lifelong repercussions.
Baby Space is a place where poor parents and children in Minneapolis can get the help they need. Founded in 1998 by child psychologist Terrie Rose, the organization provides comprehensive services from pregnancy until a child reaches 3rd grade. These services include year-round, full-day childcare; parental education; and mental health support.
Here is one significant impact Baby Space is making: 100 percent of kids who have been part of its program since birth have passed the Minneapolis post-kindergarten assessment!
