The READY (Responsive Early Access for Durham’s Young Children) Project is a collaborative initiative focused on increasing the capacity in Durham’s early childhood system to promote positive social-emotional development for children ages birth-8. SAMHSA grant funds are spread across five local partnering organizations to expand early childhood mental health and social-emotional support services, provide workforce development activities, and strengthen collaborations in this community over the course of the five-year project. The funded partner agencies are joined by other key members of Durham’s early childhood system of care in ongoing planning and collaboration through READY’s Young Child Wellness Council (YCWC) and other efforts.
