Prenatal-to-Three in Allegheny County
Child Trends originally prepared this report in August 2021 for internal use by our funder, The Heinz Endowments, and its prenatal-to-three partners in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. At our funder’s request, we are now releasing the report on our website to inform prenatal-to-three efforts nationwide.
Since Spring 2020, The Heinz Endowments has partnered with Child Trends, a national research organization focused on child and family well-being, to create Prenatal-to-Three (PN-3) resources and tools. These tools aim to contribute to a PN-3 system in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania that equitably supports all families with children from pregnancy to age three across multiple domains of well-being.
This brief includes a PN-3 framework, an interactive map of PN-3 services, a PN-3 policy analysis, and guidelines for equitable grantmaking. This work was informed by over 30 stakeholder interviews in Allegheny County, roundtables of early care and education directors, and a public forum in which child care providers and parents in Allegheny County were participating. Illustrative quotes from these interviews and roundtable discussions are provided throughout this brief.
