Focusing on the Whole Child
We envision a state where all children thrive. To that end, we advance laws, policies and actions that improve all areas of child well-being. Addressing one area, such as a quality education, while neglecting others like adequate nutrition, healthcare, and safe and stable housing, only leads to marginal improvements in a child’s life. By championing the “whole child” approach to systemic change, our work has a greater impact, particularly for those whose race, geographic location, and family income leave them most vulnerable.
