America’s Children Dream Team

The America’s Children Dream Team effort started many years ago, intending to give children better protection, love, support and a life worth living. The heroes behind the America’s Children Dream Team, goes back to our Founding Fathers of America, and continued throughout the years by many heroes. We will bring your attention to a few other heroes who help children, other than the supporters, staff and board of director members of Hope for Children Foundation. We highlight and share the work of: (1) The Annie E. Casey Foundation; and Former Vice President Joe Biden.

Former Vice President Joe Biden Knows America’s “Dirty Little Secret”

Former Vice President Joe Biden has called it a, “public health epidemic.” A “stain on the moral character of a society.” An issue that “cuts to the very core of how we measure ourselves.” Joe Biden believes, “We must change the culture.” See Joe Biden live, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, January 28, 2019.

Joe Biden has spent more than 25 years fighting to end violence against women, children and men, in the United States. In the 1990s, as a senator, he wrote the landmark Violence Against Women Act, which drastically changed how the U.S. responded to domestic violence and sexual assault. This Act offers better protection to children, women and men.

This video produced by Hope for Children Foundation shows how this Act offers protection to women, children and men:

Spotlighting the National KIDS COUNT Project by The Annie E. Casey Foundation

At the heart of the National KIDS COUNT Project’s work is the annual KIDS COUNT Data Book and the KIDS COUNT Data Center: The best available resource on the economic, physical, educational and relational well-being of children and families in the United States.

In addition to the KIDS COUNT Data Center, the National Kids Count Project develops and distributes data-driven reports on key areas of child and family well-being and demographic trends, including its annual KIDS COUNT Data Book. Regularly garnering national attention, these publications allow child and family advocates, practitioners, policymakers, public officials and concerned citizens to focus on the needs of children and families, particularly those who are vulnerable and at risk for poor outcomes.

Opening Doors for Young Parents

This KIDS COUNT policy report reminds policymakers and child advocates of the barriers that young families face, spotlighting a population of more than 2.9 million young parents and 3.4 million children nationwide. The report examines national and state-level trends — highlighting areas of opportunity and concern — and then shares potential solutions that can help these families thrive.

The 2018 KIDS COUNT Data Book: State Trends in Child Well-Being

The 2018 KIDS COUNT® Data Book warns that the 2020 census is mired in challenges that could shortchange the official census count by at least 1 million kids younger than age 5. This discrepancy would put hundreds of millions of federal dollars at risk and, in doing so, underfund programs that are critical for family stability and opportunity. The Data Book also looks at trends in child well-being over a period of six or so years — a time that saw continued improvement in economic well-being but mixed results in the areas of health, education and family and community factors.

About KIDS COUNT Data Center

KIDS COUNT is a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the well-being of children in the United States. By providing high-quality data and trend analysis through its KIDS COUNT Data Center, the Foundation seeks to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children — and to raise the visibility of children’s issues through a nonpartisan, evidence-based lens. In addition to including data from the most trusted national resources, the KIDS COUNT Data Center draws from more than 50 KIDS COUNT state organizations that provide state and local data, as well publications providing insights into trends affecting child and family well-being. Through its National KIDS COUNT Project, the Foundation develops and distributes reports on important well-being issues. Much of the data from these nationally recognized publications, including the KIDS COUNT Data Book, are featured on the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
