HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES
Access to affordable health and human services, ranging from healthcare and childcare to domestic violence and child welfare services, are key to our wellbeing, but also affect our ability to succeed in school and work and is essential to strengthening families. Our work on health and human services identifies and advances innovative and promising ideas–from the ground level to public policy–for integrated service delivery that serves individuals and families with critical needs.
Attacking the many issues that confront people who live in low-income neighborhoods is a longtime challenge. It is vital that we support these and other efforts so we achieve a scale large enough to make a measurable difference in the fight against poverty in America.
