Every day in Grayson County 4 babies are born.

Those tiny little human beings are born into wildly diverse circumstances. Some are healthy, some are not. Some have huge extended families full of experienced caregivers, some do not. Some are born into situations that include secure incomes and abundant resources, some are not.

2000 Day Journey

Regardless of their individual situations, each of these brand new Texans is equally deserving of loving care and the opportunity to thrive.

This is exactly what United Way of Grayson County’s 2000 Day Journey is working to ensure.

Using a Community Navigator, we accept referrals and conduct home visits that connect parents with community resources and guide them with the hands-on skills they need to help their child and themselves succeeds in school, work, and life.

A child who begins Kindergartner ready to succeed is set on a path that predicts their third-grade reading level, high school graduation, justice system involvement, college perseverance, and adult earning potential. So community investment in early childhood programs results in not only more successful individual citizens, but also significant economic benefits for the community as a whole.
