Resources on Faith, Ethics and Public Life

Center on Children and Families

Sponsored by the Brookings Institution, the Center on Children and Families is dedicated to the study and creation of policy that prioritizes the needs of the nation's children, particularly focusing on issues related to the growth of single-parent families over the last three decades and the availability of basic educational resources that can enhance economic mobility, especially for children from low-income families. Through its Social Genome Projects, the center works to craft a quantitative model that helps identify the policies that most improve social mobility at particular stages in the lives of children born into poverty. The Center also conducts research on looming problems involving the rapidly aging Baby Boomer generation and how future policy might best approach the confrontation of these challenges in the coming years.
