Program Summary

Poverty affects children’s health and successful medical interventions and prevention.

This presentation will explore some of the areas that poverty exacerbates for children and their families. These areas include maternal/Infant health, access and coverage, sexual health, chronic conditions, mental health, adverse childhood trauma, and human trafficking.  The presentation will provide the participants with updated data from the Growing Up in North Texas 2016 publication by the North Texas Community Foundation in association with CHILDREN AT RISK and Child Care Associates.  The publication was commissioned to identify the most strategic and pressing areas for intervention, chart new paths to move Tarrant County forward, and track progress over time.  CHILDREN AT RISK works to distill extensive statistical data and research in order to analyze policy decisions, make actionable policy recommendations to public officials, and educate the community on the state of children across Texas.
