Keeping people and communities healthy means more than access to medical care. It means ensuring people have the basics, like food, housing and economic opportunity. At the nonprofit 211info, we believe in the idea of Health for Your Whole Life. It’s our commitment to work toward an Oregon and Southwest Washington where everyone’s health and social services needs are met.
New science tells us that our children’s first years are when they develop the foundation for all future learning. Every time we connect with them, it’s not just their eyes that light up – it’s their brains too. In these moments, half a million neurons ﬁre at once, taking in all the things we say and do. We can’t see it happening, but it’s all there, all at work. That’s why Vroom is here.
Vroom turns shared moments into brain building moments. Whether it’s mealtime, bathtime, or anytime in between, there are always ways to nurture our children’s growing minds.
StORytime connects parents and families with easy-to-access, culturally relevant resources to eliminate real or perceived barriers to early literacy building. It is designed to meet families where they are with easy to do, fun activities that fit into every day life.
