Good Beginnings Alliance

Description:

Good Beginnings Alliance advocates for Hawaii’s kids. Our vision is for young children in Hawaii (prenatal to 8) to be healthy, safe and ready for school.

We convene, engage and mobilize the community for policy and systems change, creating a strong movement for children’s issues.

We build coalitions, bringing together people and organizations to plan and strategize successful solutions to children’s issues.

We provide capacity-building support to organizations and individuals so they increase their knowledge and skills needed to effectively advocate for children’s issues.

We educate and engage partner agencies on how advocacy or policy and system change works.

We help shape policy and system change to improve the lives of children through advocacy, capacity-building, communications, and data synthesis and analysis.

We work where there can be significant and lasting impact because the opportunities for success are supported by sound science, strategic planning, effective organizations, strong leadership, and community-based constituencies.
