Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Young Families (Research Report)

December 14, 2013

The National Human Services Assembly conducted an exploratory study of two-generation programs already in place within its member organizations. The Annie E. Casey Foundation supported this effort, which sought to document quality two-generation programs and identify program elements that strengthen young families. The study eventually engaged 32 National Assembly members and affiliates in sharing their knowledge about two-generation approaches and providing connections to programs that re-engage young parents in education and/or work, nurture parent-child bonds, improve children’s well-being, and connect families with economic, social, and other supports.
