Early Learning Hub of Linn, Benton & Lincoln Counties

Picture10 - Login logoThe Early Learning Hub was designed by the State of Oregon to make early learning resources and supports more available, more accessible, and more effective for children and families that have historically been over-represented in the opportunity gap and under-represented in achievement.  Our goals are to identify the under-served children of Linn, Benton & Lincoln Counties and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians, access those needs, and then work with cross-sector partners to leverage resources and meet the needs of young children and families.  Our mandated outcomes are:

  1. Kindergarten Readiness
  2. Stable and Attached Families
  3. Coordinated and Aligned Services

Currently, we have over 300 partners within the organizations and agencies of the three counties.  If you would like to become one of our partners, or if you would just like to see more information, please visit the Early Learning Hub website.
