Comprehensive Early Childhood Parenting Supports & Children’s Health & Development
PROJECT SUMMARY: Leveraging an innovative early childhood program that combines income supports, parenting education and connections to community services, this project aims to promote the early health and development of young children. A small-scale randomized controlled trial of Room to Grow will be launched to help demonstrate early parent and child outcomes of the intervention. Room to Grow’s mission is to enrich the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development.
