What is a healthy community, and how is it sustained? Katherine Freeman, United Way’s executive director, has thought a lot about that. “We — Santa Fe Public Schools and United Way of Santa Fe County — asked ourselves those questions and realized the answers were fairly simple,” Freeman said. “A healthy community is one that focuses on and takes care of its own, beginning and continuing with the children and their families.”

One way to do this is through an effective early-childhood development program, which, according to Freeman, “prepares young children for success in school on day one, thus benefiting the child, the family and the community.”
