Theory of Change

Theory of Change

This theory of change reflects the areas in which we hope to make our biggest impact.

What We Do

Working in partnership with communities, tribes, policymakers, employers, parents and others, Zero to Five Montana promotes a nonpartisan agenda to advance early childhood policy strategies through innovative partnerships, collaboration and sustainable solutions.

As part of the Zero to Five network seed-funded by the Headwaters Foundation, Zero to Five Montana serves as a statewide advocacy organization. It joins other locally-led coalitions across Western Montana working together to give children a great start in life and a promising future. The local collaboratives operate independently, with their own budgets and workplans, and are united by a common, co-created Theory of Change.

Zero to Five Montana is fiscally sponsored by Intermountain Children’s Home, a 501(c)3 organization.
