Children experience the world through the relationships with adults closest to them, whether they are parents, caregivers, grandparents or other adults within or outside of the family. These relationships significantly impact child development and when they are disrupted by adverse external circumstances, child well-being can be compromised.
The Risk and Reach Report presents county-level data representing Risk factors that could undermine optimal child development and compares them to the Reach of publicly funded programs and services that support early childhood well-being. Learn some of the highlights from the report and tools to explore the data that can help you create your program's Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), transition to kindergarten plan, support for students experiencing homelessness and recruitment and enrollment efforts.
