Child and Family Services

Without access to high-quality education, children born into poverty are likely to remain in poverty throughout their lives. To help break the cycle of poverty, we focus on changing the trajectory for young children through early childhood education.

Studies have demonstrated that children from low-income families who attend high-quality, early childhood educational programs have higher test scores, are more likely to graduate from high school and college, have higher lifetime earnings, and stay away from crime.

In addition to providing educational opportunities to children at an early age, it is also essential to support their parents using a “dual-generation” approach that involves providing supportive services and resources to help them improve their skills and increase their economic mobility.
