At Project Eagle we envision a community where children’s futures are determined by their interests and dreams and not by their circumstances. Our mission is to respond to the particular needs of the community’s youngest and most vulnerable children and their families. We focus on 1) Preparing children through high quality early learning experiences; 2) Engaging families through strengthening parenting capacity; and 3) Promoting excellence through targeted partnerships to impact the early education field.
