Meet Our Community Partners

Elgin Partnership is strengthened by cross-sector partners committed to helping support and prepare children five and under in our community to succeed in school and life. EPEL's community collaboration of community partners share services, provide funding, grants, and in-kind donations.

Partners collaborate on early learning initiatives, volunteer time, and expertise. We appreciate our partners' time, expertise, and efforts to bring action to the early childhood movement in a child's first 
2,000 Days of Life from Birth to Kindergarten.

If you are interested in partnering to work toward EPEL's Mission and Vision of Having All Children Ready for Kindergarten, please email info@elginpartnership.org
