Focusing on the Whole Child
We envision a state where ALL children thrive. 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 a stable home environment, only leads to marginal improvements in a child’s well-being. By championing the “whole child” approach, our work has a greater impact, particularly for those whose location, family income, race, or family/community circumstances leave them most vulnerable.
