The proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” rings true today as it did in 1969 when Illinois Action for Children (IAFC) first began fostering children’s wellbeing through access to high-quality child care and preschool programs.“The reality is you don’t get to pick your parents and you don’t get to pick your ZIP code...and that ZIP code determines so much about your life.” It’s time “to have a realistic conversation about how your ZIP code determines your trajectory.” - Tamron HallYOU are an essential part of our village.
