Commit to Invest in a Child’s Most Critical Years

By supporting the Promise Campaign you enable PACT to keep its programs affordable for families in our community who have nowhere else to turn

The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical in terms of development.  It is during this time that 90 percent of a child’s brain growth occurs, accompanied by the cognitive development that often determines the course of the child’s future.

Yet, for many children, those critical years are spent just trying to survive.  

PACT: Helping Children with Special Needs provides:

  • PACT's World of Care is the only medical child care center in Central Maryland where nurses and child care staff work together to care for young children with complex medical needs
  • PACT's Therapeutic Nursery is the only child care center and Early Head Start program in Baltimore City for homeless infants and toddlers

PACT offers these young children and their families hope when they have nowhere else to turn.  Ensuring that all children get the proper start in life is the goal that has been driving PACT since 1981.

Mission:

PACT’s mission is to promote the development of young children with special needs and their families, through specialized child care, early intervention services, family support services, parent education, counseling, and professional training.
