United for Brownsville is a family-led collaboration transforming the early childhood systems in Brownsville, Brooklyn, so that all young children are able to flourish.

Our work starts with families’ hopes for their children and their ideas for eradicating systemic inequities in early childhood services. This approach disrupts harmful power dynamics and beliefs rooted in anti-Black racism that prevent Black and Latinx children from lifting off.

Working better together

Since UB began driving collaboration around Early Intervention in 2019, Black children in Brownsville have doubled the rate at which they receive services. More to come soon about this unique achievement in parity!

UB is a partnership that helps systems work better for children and their caregivers

We center resident experience and expertise, build community among social service providers accustomed to working within silos, and change negative narratives by celebrating Brownsville’s many strengths.
