Creating Opportunity for Families: A Two-Generation Approach: A new KIDS COUNT® policy report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation outlines how the public, nonprofit and private sectors can work together to reduce poverty. This is a critical concern for our state, with more than half of Florida's 1,168,615 families that include children eight or younger living in low-income households.
