A Solution to the Cycle of Poverty?
The pandemic has illuminated what helps families get out of poverty. Some experts say we should do more of it.
Jackie Mader, published by The Hechinger Report April 18, 2021
“Child poverty in the United States is persistent, it’s structural. But it’s also really solvable,” said Areeba Haider, a research associate for the Poverty to Prosperity Program at the Center for American Progress.
One way to reduce child poverty, experts say, is to support on-the-ground programs that offer comprehensive “two-generation” help, providing services to kids and their parents at the same time. These programs simplify access to assistance for families in crisis while simultaneously addressing the root causes of poverty, including a lack of educational opportunities. They tackle the many intricate issues that, especially when combined, lead to poverty or keep a family in poverty — offering a potential model for what it would take to lift up the millions of struggling American families.
Elements of a two-generation approach have been evident in some programs since the 1960s, such as through the federally funded Head Start program, which offers services and resources for parents of children who are enrolled in a Head Start classroom. Two-generation programs became more prominent in the 1980s and the 1990s and have relied mostly on philanthropic funding, although more federal funding has been made available in recent years.
Research shows that two-generation approaches can improve the well-being of mothers and their children, leading to higher education attainment, jobs with livable wages and better academic performance for children. Parents are more likely to enter the workforce and retain stable employment when they have stable child care, something that is often offered by two-generation programs. And when caregivers are able to attain credentials or higher education degrees through two-generation programs, thus finding higher-paying jobs, it can have an impact on their children’s income down the road.
