As interest in two generation investment strategies grows (see the Center’s funder brief  Two Generation Lens: Helping Children by Helping Families), more communities are thinking about how to operationalize such approaches on the ground.  This was the topic of an exploratory “working lunch” in Philadelphia jointly hosted by the Center and LIFT, a national non profit dedicated to combating poverty and expanding opportunities. Participants included funders, nonprofit representatives, policy makers, and researchers interested in moving two generation approaches forward locally.
