Harlem Children's Zone
Geoffrey Canada created the Harlem Children's Zone back in the 90s and it has since developed into a program that reaches more than 10,000 young people.
One piece to HCZ that I find particularly relevant to this challenge is The Baby College that Canada started as a part of his vision. HCZ's Baby College provides expectant mothers with information on pre-natal care, and also provides workshops on care for children ages 0-3.
The wrap around service model is interesting and might provide a great source of inspiration in thinking about other ways parents can be supported to provide the best care for their children.
