Making a strong case for effective investments in children and youth in the Keystone State

On June 22, 2018, the $32.7 billion 2018-2019 state budget was enacted that included big wins for at-risk children and families in Pennsylvania. Our law enforcement, retired military, and business leaders—in coordination with our partners in the Pre-K for PA, Childhood Begins at Home, Early Learning PA and PA Schools Work campaigns—made a strong case for increasing effective investments in Pre-K Counts, Head Start State Supplemental, Child Care Works, voluntary home visiting/parent coaching programs and increased basic education funding. Our diverse membership in Pennsylvania will continue focusing attention on the urgent need to help give Pennsylvania’s most at-risk children and families their best chance to succeed while also decreasing future crime, enhancing our national security, increasing workforce readiness and saving taxpayer dollars.
