Every child is precious and full of potential. That’s why, for more than 45 years, the Children’s Defense Fund has been relentless in our work to help lift children out of poverty, protect them from violence, and ensure they have the opportunities they need to thrive and succeed. We continue to work every day to give every child a healthy start, a quality early childhood experience, a level educational playing field, stable homes and safe communities free from violence.
