The strengths and abilities children develop from infancy through adolescence are crucial for their physical, emotional and cognitive growth, which in turn help them to achieve success in school and to become responsible, economically self-sufficient and healthy adults. Capable, responsible and healthy adults are clearly the foundation of a well-functioning and prosperous society, yet America's future is not as secure as it could be because millions of American children live in families with incomes below the poverty line. A wealth of evidence suggests that a lack of adequate economic resources for families with children compromises these children's ability to grow and achieve adult success, hurting them and the broader society.
