KIDS COUNT Policy Report: A Must Read

A great source of information: The Annie E. Casey Foundation regularly publishes research and policy reports, including the KIDS COUNT Data Book, based on data featured on its KIDS COUNT Data Center. This week, we are featuring the KIDS COUNT Policy Report.

This KIDS COUNT Policy Report underscores a simple fact about childhood: Family matters. Yet, today in America, 57,000 children are still living in group placements. Readers will learn about limiting the role of residential treatment care to its intended purpose and how state and local leaders can work together to enhance family-oriented services and supports. The end goal? Brighter futures-and loving families-for some of our country's most vulnerable children.
