Every Child Succeeds


Every Child Succeeds provides an optimal start for children by promoting positive parenting and healthy child development during the important first 1,000 days of life.


Every Child Succeeds will support and strengthen families so all children reach full potential.

Every Child Succeeds will be the national leader in developing quality programs, conducting high impact research, and effectively meeting the needs of children and families.


We believe:

All children deserve an optimal start.
Every Child Succeeds is based on a strong scientific foundation demonstrating that a nurturing and stimulating environment in the first 1000 days of life promotes optimal brain growth, cognitive development, psycho-social adjustment, emotional and behavioral health, and a significant, long term change in child and family trajectories.

All parents want to be good parents.
Every Child Succeeds helps parents create a stimulating, nurturing environment that is essential for brain development and the best start in life. Every Child Succeeds encourages independence, autonomy, problem solving skills, and self-reliance.

What we do and how we do it matters.
High quality, evidence-based programs implemented with fidelity will optimize developmental trajectories of children.
Program decisions must be data driven, utilizing the best available information and continual testing for improvement.

Every Child Succeeds was founded in 1999 by three organizations — Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency and United Way of Greater Cincinnati. From the beginning, our program has been based on a strong scientific foundation demonstrating that a nurturing and stimulating environment in the first three years of life promotes brain growth, cognitive development, social skills, and emotional and behavioral health.

We partner with 9 provider agencies  whose caring professionals help new parents and their families raise successful, thriving children. Our trained home visitors provide one-to-one guidance for families in seven counties in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.

Success Stories

Every Child Succeeds is a wonderful program. It is a home visiting program, so they come to you, you don’t have to come to them. It is only for first time moms so it is your one time shot to be in it.

  • Carina G.

Baby is not yet 2 years old and is impressing her home visitor with her advanced skills—she asks questions, speaks clearly, makes detailed drawings and is working on forming letters.

  • Tara's Mom

Mom states that she is grateful for the persistence of her home visitor and she will always be a part of her family. Baby is now two years of age and mom continues to work on sign language with her son.
