Our Mission

The Ballard Center partners with families to achieve stability through early childhood education and needs-based services.

In addition to providing affordable high-quality early childhood education, we offer services to help families when they experience difficulties, so a stable family environment for children can be maintained. With the help of generous community donations, Ballard provides wrap-around supports to families through our food pantry, clothing closets, emergency assistance programs and other initiatives.
