Model Convening Project & Hand In Hand Framework


The Model Convening Project is a multi-year initiative,
with leadership and facilitation from ZERO TO THREE and
funding from the Pritzker Children’s Initiative.

Four national early childhood models – Family Connects International, HealthySteps, Help Me Grow and Nurse-Family Partnership – are exploring ways to have a greater impact on young children and their families in communities where their programs overlap.

The Model Convening Project and its Hand In Hand framework aims to ensure families receive the services they need in a coordinated manner by strengthening highly collaborative early childhood systems.
