LEAP was founded in 1971 (previously known as IVYP) in response to community need for programs to serve community children and families. LEAP celebrates the diversity of the ethnic and racial backgrounds represented in our community, and we do not discriminate against any child because of race, ethnic origin, religious affiliation or economic status.
As a non-profit organization, we provide a variety of services to our community through core programs such as; Children's Center and Family Resource Center.
Our Theory of Change
By building a resilient and connected community, LEAP seeks to mitigate the effects of poverty, racism, and trauma so that all children and families can prosper and thrive.
LEAP mitigates the effects of poverty, racism and trauma by providing high-quality, trauma informed child care; comprehensive, culturally sensitive family support; and visionary community leadership.
