Get Involved

We’re working with partners across California to bring innovative solutions to our state’s child poverty crisis.

ALL our children deserve to grow up healthy, fed, and housed. With your help, we’re going to end extreme child poverty and cut overall child poverty in California in half.

Many complex issues impact our child poverty crisis—housing instability, child care shortages, health-care access, effective workforce development programs, accessible early childhood education, an equal share of economic prosperity, and more. In 2018, California released the End Child Poverty Plan that brings forward simple solutions to complex problems. The plan is innovative, research-based, and achievable.

Our partners were critical in achieving big wins in 2019. In 2020, we’re mobilizing to FULLY enact the End Child Poverty Plan.
