Casey Foundation Offers a Two-Generation Approach to Creating Opportunity for Families
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 undefined and recommends ways to help equip parents and children with what they need to thrive.
New data from the report is now featured in the KIDS COUNT Data Center. In addition, resources on two-generation approaches are available on the Casey website.
