Key Takeaway

Transforming Neighborhoods is a key to raising families out of poverty

Casey has a new motto:  Children do well when their families do well, and families do better when they live in supportive communities. The statement builds on our experience and the work of others who have toiled to improve the futures of disadvantaged children. The lesson? It is simply not possible to make a difference for kids living in concentrated poverty without investing in and involving their families and neighborhoods.
