Family Foundations: What’s Important

Getting the basics right at home makes a big difference for kids

It might seem like a no-brainer, but there’s oodles of evidence that children who experience childhood poverty are, on average, more vulnerable across a whole range of issues.  So getting the basics right at home plays a big role in getting better outcomes for kids.  Stable housing, jobs and a regular income, personal safety and overall personal wellbeing are important underpinnings for any efforts to support great outcomes for kids.   That’s not to say that money is everything – engaged, kind parenting can overcome most hurdles – but poverty and instability make everything harder.

In summary

These are the issues we are focused on for Family Foundations:

  • Jobs and employment
  • Secure housing
  • Family safety
  • Social and emotional wellbeing for all family members
  • Parents are knowledgeable and confident in their parenting role
