Creating Opportunity for Families: A Two-Generation Approach. KIDS COUNT Policy Report
Gencer, Arin
Annie E. Casey Foundation
Nearly half of the nation's families with young children struggle to make ends meet. A new KIDS COUNT policy report makes the case for creating opportunity for families by addressing the needs of parents and their children simultaneously. "Creating Opportunity for Families: A Two-Generation Approach" describes a new approach to reducing poverty, which calls for connecting low-income families with early childhood education, job training and other tools to achieve financial stability and break the cycle of poverty--and recommends ways to help equip parents and children with what they need to thrive. [This report was written with the assistance of Shelley Waters Boots.]
