Bring­ing togeth­er pro­grams and ser­vices that address the needs of the whole fam­i­ly is a key com­po­nent of devel­op­ing a sus­tain­able and effec­tive two-gen­er­a­tion approach. Yet most state and fed­er­al fund­ing is designed for dis­crete pur­pos­es, geared toward either adults or children.

Dur­ing a webi­nar on March 14, the Casey Foun­da­tion released a new brief that high­lights the strate­gies sev­er­al orga­ni­za­tions are using to address par­ent and child needs at the same time, as well as pol­i­cy rec­om­men­da­tions to sup­port the adop­tion and growth of two-gen­er­a­tion approach­es. Advanc­ing Two-Gen­er­a­tion Approach­es: Fund­ing to Help Fam­i­lies Suc­ceed” is the first in a series explor­ing the chal­lenges that many orga­ni­za­tions face when engag­ing in these efforts.

The ses­sion fea­tured the brief’s authors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from two orga­ni­za­tions — Good­will of Cen­tral and South­ern Indi­ana and Unit­ed Way of San Anto­nio and Bexar Coun­ty — who dis­cussed core fund­ing strate­gies for coor­di­nat­ing resources to equip par­ents and chil­dren with the tools and skills they need to succeed.
