The high cost of living in the Flagstaff area prevents many families above the FPL from affording high-quality preschool

Increase access to community resources by building relationships with families


  • High cost of living mixed with minimum wage increases make it hard for families to afford programming
  • Families are a child’s primary teacher
  • Students with engaged families attend school more regularly, earn better grades, enroll in advanced level programs and have higher graduation rates
  • Families need multiple supports in a coordinated, equitable, and efficient manner


  • Use our Elevate PreK Resource Finder to see what early learning programs you may qualify for, including the Elevate PreK Pilot classrooms
  • Connect with an Elevate Family Partner to help you navigate what programs will help your family
  • Build a Community Collaboration Committee that includes families and service providers to streamline ALL social services needed

Building Community and First Things First convened families and organizations to move towards making a one-stop shop for support services and social connections.

Coconino County Health and Human Services has awarded Candelen with a two-year grant to provide relationship-based outreach to families while getting them connected to any community service.
