An initiative of the SUN Service System Division of Multnomah County Human Services, Linkage supports school readiness and success by connecting Multnomah County's SUN Community Schools model to its early childhood system of supports.

These early childhood efforts promote:

  • Coordinated, successful transition to school
  • Supported, supportive and engaged families
  • Regular attendance in the early grades
  • Community engagement in the science of early learning.

Linkage Campaigns

Linkage supports these goals through two community wide campaigns:

  1. Kindergarten Counts  
  2. Multnomah Mind in the Making.
