Business and Professional People for the Public Interest (BPI) contracted with Erikson to conduct an assessment of the early childhood services in Chicago’s Altgeld-Riverdale community.

The assessment highlighted the strengths and challenges the community faces in providing high-quality early learning experiences for young children and their families, and recommended strategies for building a comprehensive system of services and supports aimed at enhancing the developmental and educational outcomes of the community’s children from birth to age eight.
