The majority of Minnesota children ages 0-12 have all available parents in the workforce, and one-third of Minnesota children live in low-income families that struggle to meet basic needs.
Minnesota’s future prosperity will depend upon the well-being of every child in our state. To help every child thrive, we must support the needs of working families and bring all families to economic stability.
Help us ensure parents and caregivers have the resources to support and nurture their children, including jobs that pay livable wages, fair workplace policies, affordable, high-quality child care and access to safety-net programs for meeting basic needs. CDF-MN champions programs and policies that support working families and help them climb the ladder to economic security.
