Several years ago, community leaders recognized that Kankakee area children were not entering Kindergarten ready to learn and succeed. Out of this realization, Success By 6 was started as a collaboration between the United Way, the Community Foundation with support from a host of other partners from schools, hospitals, community organizations and government. Success By 6 is an early childhood initiative that works to ensure that all Kankakee County children 0-6 have the positive and enriching experiences and positive parent-child relationships necessary to begin school ready to succeed.

Success By 6 and the United Way recently became a partner for "Text4Baby". Text4baby is the first mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health through text messaging. Text4baby is a free service!
