Secure Parents and Successful Kids: A two-generation approach to tackling poverty

WAS HELD on Monday, October 26, 2015

Historically, Michigan has tried to support low-income parents and their children through separate policies and programs. Unfortunately, that has not been met with great success. There is new promise in two-generation approaches that meet the needs of low-income parents and their children simultaneously. Research shows that two-generation programs and policies can effectively help the two generations make progress together. It’s a win-win for children, their families and the state.
