Kids Count


State governments establish and enforce many of the policies that directly affect the well-being of children and families, particularly the 16.4 million kids across the United States who are living in poverty today. State legislators and agency officials can connect children to quality education and health care, parents to economic opportunities and communities to better ways of working on behalf of families.
