To support the work of early childhood and caregivers of young children, Trying Together participates in multiple campaigns, including Pre-K for PA, Start Strong PA, and Childhood Begins at Home. Powered through the work of organizations across the state, these campaigns combat modern challenges that families and professionals face in supporting the success of their young children.

To advocate for increased investments, Trying Together depends in part on its partnership with supporters like you. Will you join us? Take action below and sign-on to advocate for conditions that help Pennsylvania’s children and families thrive.


For more than a decade, Pennsylvania’s elected leaders have prioritized funding for high-quality early learning opportunities for our youngest children and in many cases, our most vulnerable citizens. This infrastructure is not only critical to the healthy development of children but is also a critical support for Pennsylvania’s working families.

Throughout the pandemic, Pennsylvania’s early care and education system has faced enormous challenges. In fact, more than 500 child care providers have closed their doors permanently since March 2020.

Federal CARES Act and other economic stimulus funding have helped, but more action is needed to further stabilize the Early Care and Education sector and grow access to these essential services for more of Pennsylvania’s working families when our economy fully reopens.

Sign this petition to join providers, parents, advocates and allies from across Pennsylvania and tell state lawmakers that they must provide much needed resources to preserve the Commonwealth’s existing early learning system and ensure the healthy development of more young children.
