Charting a Vision for the Future

Our mission calls us to bold action, to build capacity and drive change in communities least empowered to give their children the brightest futures—communities with a disproportionate number of children living in poverty, children affected by the opioid crisis, children in the child welfare system, and children devalued by racial bias. By supporting our country's most under-resourced communities, we can help improve health for our nation’s children, now and into the future.

Changing Systems,
Changing Lives

During the past 20 years, we’ve led over 80 initiatives and reached millions of children and families. Our unique approach to improving children’s health systems gives more families access to care and coordinated services, and helps more children achieve better outcomes. Together with our partners, our work has helped the country achieve real changes in children’s health:

  • National infant mortality rates decreased by 5 percent, saving hundreds of babies every year
  • Over 200,000 more babies and mothers receive the life-changing benefits of breastfeeding every year
  • Over 10,000 more children with sickle cell disease have access to quality care
  • 95 percent of children confirmed with hearing loss nationwide referred for early intervention
  • The birth of a ground-breaking partnership of early childhood development stakeholders, spanning 12 states and 28 communities
