BRIDGEPORT PROSPERS EARNS NATIONAL RECOGNITION

Local Collective Impact movement elevated within StriveTogether’s National Cradle to Career Network

Bridgeport, Connecticut - Bridgeport Prospers has been recognized by StriveTogether, a national nonprofit working to bring communities together around data to make decisions and improve results for kids.  Notably the local Collective Impact movement has been elevated within the StriveTogether Cradle to Career network to the “Sustaining Gateway” quality benchmark.

Bridgeport Prospers Executive Director Allison Logan commented: “I want to thank our many community partners and Bridgeport Prospers/UW team members for your support that helped to carry us to this major accomplishment.”

Gaining particular recognition is the “Baby Bundle,” a group of initiatives designed to ensure that all children are healthy and ready for preschool by age three.  And StriveTogether has invited Bridgeport Prospers work to highlight this work at its annual conference in Seattle in October.

“Bridgeport Prospers is making significant strides in how partners work together to use data to improve results for kids,” StriveTogether President & CEO Jennifer Blatz said.  “We congratulate Bridgeport Prospers for the progress they are making and look forward to recognizing them when they reach more milestones along their journey to enable economic mobility for students and families.”

This “Baby Bundle” buzz is reaching other national organizations as well:

The challenge to improve outcomes is steep:  Connecticut has one of the nation’s largest achievement gaps between students of low income and their better-off peers.  But Bridgeport Prospers aims to change that.   Starting at the youngest ages, which lay the foundation for development that lasts a lifetime.
