Emily York McConarty, Executive Director of Room to Grow Boston

Room to Grow addresses the statistical reality that children born into poverty are more likely to enter school behind their middle-income peers, leading to a lifelong educational achievement gap that is nearly impossible to overcome. Serving families from just before their child's birth through age three, Room to Grow provides individualized parenting education and support, high-quality material items, and specialized referrals to vital community resources to ensure a healthy and secure start in life.
