The Paterson Alliance is a coalition of 75 non-profit organizations that work together to advance the quality of life in the city of Paterson. By creating community partnerships and collaborations, the Alliance builds the capacity of the non-profit sector to serve the Paterson community. 

This project builds on previous support for The Paterson Alliance’s work to educate Paterson’s parents about the importance of high-quality early childhood education and to expand enrollment in Pre-K programs. The Alliance is continuing its public information and neighborhood navigator work and adding information about quality infant toddler care to its information about Pre-K. Other components of the project include an analysis of needed Pre-K classroom space and potential locations for new classrooms and an expanded effort to create Parent Cafés, where neighborhood parents can come together to share information and hear from early education, health, and other community resources.
