This community planning effort represents the input of hundreds of Killingly, Plainfield, Putnam, Sterling, & Thompson residents. Community members participated in focus groups and/or completed surveys to share what they felt was working, and where we needed to focus our efforts, to address the health, safety, and educational needs of our youngest citizens. This plan also represents the work of many community members who served on the various committees and workgroups. They examined data and investigated factors that are preventing our children from being healthy, safe and successful. They developed strategies to target those factors. We want to thank them for their steadfast involvement. Their work led us to embrace our result statement: “All children, birth through age eight, in Killingly, Plainfield, Putnam, Sterling, & Thompson are healthy, safe and successful learners.” This is what we want for all of our children.
