A forum for the presentation of research and policy initiatives in the areas of education, social services, public policy and welfare reform, the Journal of Children & Poverty seeks to promote intellectual debate and new ideas that will impact policy and practice in the field of child and family welfare. From an international perspective, the journal invites critical and creative thinking to further the understanding of global issues affecting the quality of life for children and families. Recent issues of the Journal of Children & Poverty have included articles that probe an array of topics: family policies, past and present; the forgotten role of child care in welfare reform; effective models of education for at-risk youth; and an extensive survey on the demographics of homeless families in the United States, providing valuable quantitative data on one of the most misunderstood and inadequately addressed public policy issues. The Journal of Children & Poverty is a publication for the Institute for Children and Poverty, an independent research and policy think tank working in association with Homes for the Homeless. The Journal of Children & Poverty targets a cross-disciplinary audience that includes policy makers, academics, service providers, advocates, educators, philanthropists and community leaders.
