Young people succeed in school, a career and in our community when caring adults and organizations work together. Every Child/Every Promise works to increase awareness and the resources needed to deliver the Five Promises. 

ECEP believes that no single organization can ensure the future success of our community’s youth – it takes a network of organizations and individuals working together.
