We’re Mobilizing West Virginians to Be the Voice for Kids

West Virginians overwhelmingly support investing in our kids – to make sure they have a strong start in life and that they grow healthy.

Research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development, making early childhood education and adequate nutrition vital.

Join us to ensure all children succeed in school and life!

Ellie O’Keefe
West Virginia Senior Associate Family Engagement

Ellie began her career working directly with youth, first as a childcare provider and then as a youth librarian in public libraries across the United States. She firmly believes that providing quality care, education and resources for youth benefits everyone in a community. Now that she has a toddler of her own, her call to advocate for the best possible future for youth is even stronger. She is eager to ensure that the voices of caregivers and youth are heard and valued by policymakers here in West Virginia.
