ZERO TO THREE is a leading voice for the mental health and well-being of babies and toddlers. Their mission is to ensure all babies and toddlers have a strong start in life. They believe that early connections matter, a cause they’ve championed among parents, early childhood professionals, and policymakers for over 40 years. ZERO TO THREE’s programs and services advance the proven power of nurturing relationships by transforming the science of early childhood into helpful resources, practical tools, and responsive policies. The love and support provided by grandfamilies and kinship families reflect its mission.

ZERO TO THREE is honored to partner with the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network and other leaders in the grandfamilies field to shine a spotlight on the tremendous strengths and continued needs of grandparent-headed families. By establishing this first-ever Technical Assistance Center, we have the opportunity to build systems of support, guidance, and best practice—that will lead to powerful and positive impacts for grandfamilies and communities nationwide.Rebecca Parlakian, Senior Director of Programs, ZERO TO THREE
