Center on Children and Families
The Brookings Institution's Center on Children and Families conducts research and outreach which focuses on four issues: 1) low-income working families and policies designed to improve their economic prospects; 2) policies to increase the proportion of children growing up in married, two-parent families, including proposals to reduce teen pregnancy; 3) social mobility in the United States and investments in children to improve their opportunities to climb higher on the education and income ladder; and 4) fiscal problems of federal and state governments, and steps that can be taken to ensure fiscal responsibility while supporting programs targeted to poor and low-income families.

The Brookings Institution
The Brookings Institution is an independent, nonpartisan organization devoted to research, analysis, education, and publication on public policy issues in economics, foreign policy, and governance.
