WHY EQUITY MATTERS TO US

All children deserve a clear path to economic prosperity through family, education, and community opportunities.  At KConnect, we realize thatequity, or what may be termed as the equality of outcomes, is a critically important part of realizing that vision.

In Kent County, pervasive inequity in housing, transportation, school, healthcare, food, finances, and employment, leads to lost human potential and lost economic opportunities for the entire community. KConnect, through cross-sector collaboration, employing an intentional equity focus, and using targeted strategies to reach universal goals, works to illuminate disparity and examine systems that place certain populations at a disadvantage. By working collectively to identify and dismantle barriers that limit potential, we can bridge the achievement and opportunity gaps to ensure that all children fulfill their potential.
