Zero To Five Missoula

A good education is a start for a good quality of life. Education provides the means to get a good job with enough income to support a family and save for retirement, and it also allows people to make better choices and improve their health. We know that education is a driver of success later in life. That's why we make enhancing education for all of our children a priority, and that's why we are proud to work with Graduation Matters Missoula, helping our students graduate from high school ready for college or career training, and ready for success in life. 

We're also the Missoula anchor organization (staffing) for Zero To Five Missoula, new collaborative effort, a community-wide movement to make sure every resident of Missoula County understands the importance of this critical period of life, and to connect parents and caregvers to the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to help children thrive.
