KIDS COUNT®, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a national and state-by-state effort to track the well-being of children in the United States. By providing high-quality data and trend analysis, KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local, state, and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children — and to raise the visibility of children's issues through a nonpartisan, evidence-based lens.
DC KIDS COUNT is part of the network of local-level organizations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia that provide a community-by-community picture of the condition of children. The network organizations also monitor budget and legislative decisions in the states and provide policy analysis based on evidence of what works for children and families.
The role of the DC KIDS COUNT Advisory Board is to provide critical leadership and strategic input as DC KIDS COUNT strives to develop and use its data to inform policy discussions and decisions to secure better futures for all of DC’s children.
DC Action for Children staff are responsible for the day-to-day management of DC KIDS COUNT. The DC KIDS COUNT Advisory Board serves as a sounding board and reflection point on critical decisions.
