Erikson at the Forefront

Investing in early childhood isn’t a should, it’s a must. Children in Chicago and around the country face many challenges — from high rates of poverty to starting school already behind.

Watch how Erikson is leading the way to a better future. The video was generously produced by AdelsteinListon.
