AVANCE Recognized for Its Impact

AVANCE’s dual-generation approach to early childhood education makes it  one of the most comprehensive and effective early childhood programs in the country. Each week mothers attend classes to learn how to become better parents, while their children attend to help prepare them to succeed in  kindergarten and beyond.

After impacting families across Texas for almost forty years, AVANCE has been named one of the top-performing nonprofit organizations in the United States on a newly launched online giving platform. The Social Impact 100 (S&I 100) (www.SI100.org) is the first-ever broad index of U.S. nonprofits that have evidence of results and the potential to grow. The Index helps nonprofits find the capital they need to reach more people and empowers donors to make a bigger difference. Out of over 100 organizations, AVANCE is the only early education-focused nonprofit headquartered in Texas to be featured in the S&I 100, and is helping to place Texas at the forefront of discussions surrounding the importance of early education.
