Project Initiative: Northeastern community members work with the ABCD to help provide support for pre-K students in their Jumpstart program.
ABCD is a nonprofit human services organization that each year provides more than 100,000 low income residents in the Greater Boston region with the tools and resources needed to transition from poverty to stability and from stability to success. To fulfill this purpose, ABCD uses a comprehensive approach that systematically addresses the range of barriers faced by households in poverty, from day-to-day crises to long term needs for jobs and education.
Jumpstart is a nonprofit working toward the day that every child in America enters Kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart partners with local Headstart and area preschools predominantly serving children from low income backgrounds to focus on developing language, literacy and social emotional skills.
