2014 SOAC_child poverty.pdf

Despite great wealth, the U.S. has one of the highest rates of child poverty among industrialized countries. Poverty impairs all aspects of a child’s development and can have lifelong detrimental consequences. Poor children are more likely to go hungry and are less likely to be read to during their early years.

2014 SOAC_child welfare.pdf

Child abuse and neglect continue to harm too many children. While poverty is the single strongest predictor of child abuse and neglect, most poor parents do not abuse or neglect their children. Child maltreatment occurs in families of all income levels, especially when parents face challenges such as substance abuse, untreated mental health problems, and domestic violence and don’t have access to the services and treatment they need.

2014 SOAC_education.pdf

For generations of families, education has been the path out of poverty. With a quality education children can acquire the economic, social, cultural and political capital they need to realize their potential and support their future families. Educational opportunities continue to be grossly unequal across the country. The lottery of geography and birth means children in higher income and White and Asian families are more likely to have access to high-quality early education that sets them up for later academic and social success, while children of color and poor children are disproportionally denied the opportunity for a strong start.

2014 SOAC_child health.pdf

To survive and thrive all children need access to comprehensive, affordable health coverage that is easy to get and keep. Unmet health and mental health needs can result in children falling behind developmentally and having trouble catching up, physically, emotionally, socially and academically. Thanks in large part to Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the number of uninsured children today is at a historic low.
