Family Support Initiative

About This Project


Family support is a critical component of an early childhood system. All families should have access to economic and parenting supports to ensure all children have nurturing and stable relationships with caring adults.



Family support includes efforts such as home visiting, parent education, family literacy, income and workforce support, family presentation services, and extended paid family leave. Parents are their children’s first and most important teachers.



Ensuring that parents have sufficient support to provide nurturing homes and meet basic needs is essential to children’s development
