Hamden's Partnership for Young Children

The mission of Hamden's Partnership for Young Children is to work with families and the communities to plan, coordinate, and improve services for all children. We seek to ensure that our children are healthy, start school ready to learn, perform successfully in school, and have stable, economically self-sufficient families so they may grow up to become productive, contributing members of society.
