DecNews1-1.pngThe National Assembly documents the practices of organizations operating quality two-generation programs serving young families led by parents aged 15 to 24 in Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Young Families: Two-Generation Strategies for Working with Disconnected Young Parents & Their Children. These programs use a two-generation approach to re-engage young parents in education and/or work, nurture the parent-child bond, improve the children’s wellbeing, and connect the family with economic, social, and other supports. For the report, sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, NHSA consulted with 32 organizations and identified eight elements of success for two-generation approaches to overcoming poverty.
