A plan will be developed over the next several months to help young children in Springfield. KSMU's Michele Skalicky has more.
The Mayor's Commission for Children will hold a kickoff meeting Tuesday night (11-5-05) to introduce a community-wide plan to address the needs of children 8 and under. The plan will be based on the America's Promise "5 Promises commitment to children.
"The 5 promises are caring adults, safe places, effective education, a healthy start and opportunities to help others."
