Near­ly half of the nation’s fam­i­lies with young chil­dren strug­gle to make ends meet. Our lat­est KIDS COUNT pol­i­cy report presents the Foun­da­tion’s case for cre­at­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty for fam­i­lies by address­ing the needs of par­ents and their chil­dren simul­ta­ne­ous­ly so that both can suc­ceed togeth­er. A num­ber of oth­er resources offer addi­tion­al insights into the ratio­nale and research behind two-gen­er­a­tion approach­es, as well as exam­ples of how state and fed­er­al poli­cies could help equip fam­i­lies with the tools and skills they need to thrive.
