The Shriver Center works to make critical supports and early intervention services available to parents with low income so that all infants can thrive.
- We advocate for universal developmental screening and services to support children’s healthy development.
- We work to ensure that children in poverty and their parents have access to comprehensive medical care, including behavioral health care and infant mental health support.
- We advocate for a continuum of accessible parenting support services, including Early Head Start and other evidence-based home visiting programs.
- We support expansion of the federal Child Tax Credit to benefit children living in deep poverty.
