Meet Our Community Partners

Elgin Partnership is strengthened by cross-sector partners committed to helping support and prepare children five and under to succeed in school and life. EPEL’s community partners share resources, services, and in-kind donations.

Partners collaborate to support 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 support EPEL’s vision of All Children are Happy, Healthy and Ready for Kindergarten, please contact
