CDF-MN Working Families & Economic Stability

The Problem

In Minnesota, many children aged 0-12 have parents or caregivers actively contributing to the workforce. But one-third of these families face economic challenges, making it hard to meet basic needs.

Our Vision

The future of Minnesota depends on the well-being of every young person. We envision a state where children and youth survive and thrive. This vision is rooted in our commitment to supporting working families and ensuring economic stability for every household.

The Solution

Together, we can help equip parents and caregivers with the resources they need to care for their children. This means advocating for jobs that offer livable wages and fair workplace policies, ensuring affordable high-quality child care, and providing access to safety-net programs for essential needs. CDF-MN champions policies and programs that uplift working families, paving the way for economic security and a brighter future for all.
