Zion recognizes that education is an essential resource for breaking cycles of generational poverty. Early childhood care and education is more than preparation for academic success. Quality care and education impacts the holistic development of a child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs. Zion focuses on early childhood education in order to build a solid and broad foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing.
“Without knowledge, the people will perish." Knowledge can open doors that we never knew existed. Zion’s programming is designed to help individuals discover and explore their unlimited potential.
An essential element of our formula for success is social capital. Through our relationships ZELA has been able to provide childcare, preschool education, and healthy childhood development support for more than 300 children.
The families of our ZELA children are also supported with services that include a food pantry, emergency rental and utility assistance, workforce development training, and other supportive resources.
