New Case Study: Building Systems that Work in East Providence, RI


First 10 brings together school districts, elementary schools, early childhood programs, and community agencies to build coherent systems of support for young children and their families. Although our First 10 communities share the same model, it comes together differently in each location. In this case study, we showcase an especially strong partnership between a school district and a large community organization in Rhode Island that has resulted in additional family and teacher supports in the two years since the partnership began. Find out specifics in our newly released case study, Building Systems That Work.
