Ready to Learn Providence
Program being funded: Healthy Futures AmeriCorps Program




How they serve the community
Ready to Learn Providence (R2LP), a program of The Providence Plan, works to improve the educational and health outcomes of young children in Rhode Island through professional development, community engagement, research, and direct service.

How the BlueAngel grant will help
R2LP is expanding their Healthy Futures AmeriCorps program to ensure that children can achieve the health milestones needed to arrive in school ready to learn. To help reduce health disparities, this model leverages R2LP's ability to engage families that have been isolated from traditional outreach efforts that connect health and school readiness. AmeriCorps members will deliver interventions to improve Providence-area children's health status and help parents understand age-appropriate development milestones.
