(USA) Developing Place-Based Two-Generation Partnerships.Lessons from Three Community Change Initiative Partnerships (Urban Institute)

The Family-Centered Community Change (FCCC) initiative, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, developed integrated services for communities—including education and care for children and job training and financial and employment services for adults—to help family members succeed together in a two-generation approach.
