Illinois Action for Children (IAFC) works to ensure that every child in Illinois—particularly those in need—has access to the resources to succeed in school and in life. Our mission is to be a catalyst for organizing, developing and supporting strong families and powerful communities where children matter most.
Through our Early Learning Programs, IAFC partners with early learning centers in west and south suburban Cook County to implement the Preschool for All and Prevention Initiative programs. Preschool for All (PFA) and Prevention Initiative (PI) are state-funded early childhood education programs administered by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
Our goal is to implement quality programming by providing highly-qualified staff, enriched early childhood materials for learning, ongoing professional development for staff, resources for families, and partnerships with local school districts.
