ABSTRACT
Despite the multitude of obstacles that low-income parents face, many of them succeed in helping their children flourish.

They raise children who possess the social-emotional competence needed to develop and keep friendships; establish good  relationships with parents, teachers, and other adults; and experience a range of achievements that contribute to their self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-efficacy.

The National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) is a nonpartisan public policy research center at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.

NCCP is dedicated to promoting the economic security, healthy development, and well-being of America’s low-income children and their families.

Listening to Curtis

The media calls Curtis “Wall Street” Carroll the “Oracle of San Quentin” for his stock picking prowess and ability to translate financial information into simple language for his students.

(Another terrific TED talk)

Listening to David

We talk all the time, about this huge tear in our social fabric.

We know of no other American that consistently talks with extraordinary understanding, exceptional language and specific context and examples about the stuff we care about.

We’re in the business of building a more caring and connected community and we respect Mr. Brooks beyond measure. He is a bright and shining light and a national treasure.
