    Jamila's Corner: "Coming of Age Homeless in Our Nation's Capital"
    It was the youngest ones who always got me. The newborn babies returning from the hospital to a homeless shelter as their first home. No balloons or fresh cribs waiting for them. The toothless toddlers smile broadly, wiggling across the dirty shelter floor, happy to be alive, oblivious to their circumstances in life.

    Child Watch® Column: "Children Drop Out and Into Lives of Poverty and Imprisonment"
    A homeless man talking about how he ended up on the streets said he had wanted to get in with the "cool" crowd in 8th or 9th grade—a crowd that smoked marijuana, got into fights, and skipped school. No adult reached out to help him turn his life around so he continued his decline into a life of chronic joblessness and poverty, and long stretches of incarceration after he dropped out of school.

    Child Watch® Column: "Beating the Odds in Tough Times"
    In these challenging economic times, when so many are struggling to keep their heads above water, life is toughest for children in broken families at the low end of the income scale. Yet despite struggling to live under the worst conditions, there are extraordinary young people who draw upon their inner strength to overcome the most daunting barriers.

    Child Watch® Column: "Is There Still No Room in Our Inn for the Most Famous Poor Baby in History?"
    In this holy season of Advent, tens of millions of Christians are waiting for and preparing to celebrate the birthday of the most famous poor baby in history on Christmas Day. Yet that baby – born in a stable after being denied a room in the inn for his birth over 2,000 years ago – might still find "no room" signs in the health care inn in the richest nation on earth in 2009.

    Child Watch® Column: "A Thanksgiving Prayer to End Poverty in Our Time"
    Thanksgiving is a time when many Americans pause to be grateful for all we have. In the current economic downturn when the gap between rich and poor is at the highest level since the Great Depression and the unemployment rate is 10.2 percent, millions of our neighbors, including many families with children, are struggling hard to count their blessings.
