Assessing Models of Coordinated Services for Low-Income Children and Their Families

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Sama-Miller, Emily; Ross, Christine; Cavadel, Elizabeth;
Date Issued: 2018
Description: Through this project, ACF seeks to learn more about how states and communities coordinate early care and education, family economic security, and/or other health and human services to most efficiently and effectively serve the needs of low-income children and their families. This work builds on the Integrated Approaches to Supporting Child Development and Improving Family Economic Security project (https://www.acf.hhs.gov/opre/integrated-approaches-supporting-child-development-improving-family-self-sufficiency). The goal of this new award is to build on that investment by identifying the range of existing approaches to coordinate a broader set of services. Coordination approaches seek to address the multi-faceted needs of families and to support children’s development by providing access to high quality early care and education while simultaneously addressing additional family needs, such as parenting education, supports for family economic security, and other health and human services. By connecting and facilitating these services for families, coordination approaches endeavor to move families out of poverty in the short-term and decrease the chance that poverty will continue into the next generation.
