The Sioux Falls Hope Coalition focuses on narrowing the achievement gap in our community through one simple strategy: Ensuring that every child gets a chance to attend preschool. Supported by business leaders, the United Way, and non-profits, the coalition is seeking to place children, currently on a waiting list for subsidized preschool, into existing high quality faith-based programs.
The Hope Coalition is working with many community partners to identify children who might not get the chance to attend preschool. As many as 300 kids each year don’t get that opportunity.
The first classes for 40 children began in fall 2017. The second year, 2018-19, found 90 kids in preschool classes and the goal for 2019-20 is 150 children.
