Place Holder

To improve birth outcomes, we must further economic security by supporting families with programs and policies that increase access to living wages and workforce development, quality housing and education, childcare and beyond.

This working group will take actions that include:

  • Advocating for funding and programs that increase access to safe and affordable quality housing 
  • Supporting increased access to quality affordable childcare, free preschool and pre-kindergarten 
  • Supporting community workforce development
  • Identifying and implementing programs to bring fresh and affordable foods to communities
  • Promoting the scale-up of novel systems approaches to help disrupt lifelong economic insecurity (i.e., universal basic income and baby bonds)

Every family can have the best possible start.

Only by working together can we confront inequities and ensure the health and wellbeing of every family.
