Children Programs focus on early childhood development (ages 0-5), providing skill building activities, developmental and health screenings, kindergarten readiness and transition, and referrals to community resources through home visits and culturally and linguistically specific parent education classes. IRCO also helps keep families together, giving parents the support they need to keep children safely in their homes or be reunified with their children after time in foster care. TTSD is proud to partner with them, serving our local students.
We are a Latino-led education organization, grounded in culturally-specific practices and services, that lifts up youth and families to reach their full potential. Our work springs from the core belief in Latino community self-determination—that is, the ability of community members to participate meaningfully in the decisions that affect their lives and the lives of their families.
