National Center for Children in Poverty
The National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) is a non-profit, non-partisan research and policy organization at Columbia University. Its mission is to identify and promote strategies to prevent child poverty, and to improve the lives of low-income children and families. The NCCP website offers a wealth of data, research and articles. A new fact sheet on Parental Employment in Low-Income Families
describes how just 16% of children in low-income families do not have an employed parent; it identifies the policy implications and describes some strategies to help these children. Some of these strategies embrace programs in which low-income residents of this state may need legal assistance.
